Working with Andrea is a privilege. She cares deeply about the long term well being of her clients, professionally and personally. I know this because I have met many, and we all feel grateful. She helped me find the intersection of what I'm am best at and what I love most. She has the utmost integrity and advises in a manner which is well thought-out and without bias. Andrea takes zero shortcuts. If she needs more context on a matter, she'll invest the time appropriately.

Experiencing what the group session would be like prior to interview day was critical to my preparation. I felt so much more comfortable and confident going into the interview than I would have otherwise, and I was able to leverage effective techniques that I had learned in the practice sessions to help my group succeed. A must-do for anyone interviewing at Wharton.
