"Hi I'm Michelle. I graduated from Barnard College in NYC. Upon graduation I did a 3 month backpack tour of Europe, staying in youth hostels. I ended in Switzerland where I did a 3 month internship with an embroidery designer. Returning to the states I spent the next 18 years working in a embroidery company specializing in licensed logos - lots of clothing trademarks like the little Izod alligator, but mostly work for all four sports leagues - MLB, NBA, NFL and NHL.

I've discovered Zoom in this Covid environment as the perfect way to meet my subjects and I'll bring that same energy to students when I work with them! Because I'm a passionate interviewer I also look forward to helping college applicants write powerful and personal glimp" less...
