Connie

Bio

Connie grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah, spoiled by the mountains in her backyard and powdery snow each winter. She moved to the northeast to attend Harvard where she graduated Phi Beta Kappa and summa cum laude with a BA in Neurobiology and a secondary in Global Health and Health Policy. After college, Connie spent a year at the University of Oxford, earning a master's degree in Evidence-Based Social Intervention and Policy Evaluation. There, she researched the effectiveness of self-management programs for adolescents with chronic conditions. Connie then returned to Boston to attend Harvard Medical School, where she helped lead a student-faculty collaborative clinic and conducted clinical research on rare skin neoplasms. Connie works at Brigham and Women's Hospital, and will be doing her dermatology residency at the Harvard Combined Dermatology Program. 

Connie has a wide range of tutoring experiences, ranging from tutoring at the Research Science Institute, to college-level biology, to medical school admissions. Her particular strengths are in biology, chemistry, and college/medical school admissions. Connie is a dedicated mentor who strives to learn the students' stories and help them achieve their goals.

Outside of academics, Connie likes to cook and bake—really anything that has to do with food. She also loves to run along the Esplanade and play the piano.

Testimonials
  • Testimonial Citation: 
    "Connie is hands down the best coach/mentor/advisor I have worked with throughout my entire pre-medical journey. She is a dedicated individual who gave me insightful suggestions and advice on filling out my application (especially my extracurriculars), requesting strong letters of recommendation, and drafting a personal statement that perfectly highlighted my passions and strengths for pursuing medicine. Connie's timely responses especially helped when I was overwhelmed with secondary applications. Her confidence in my ability to matriculate into medical school helped me get over my own self-doubts with the application process, and I would recommend her to anyone who wants the best chance at a successful application cycle. Thank you Connie!"

    "Connie was an absolute joy to work with, I could not have been matched with a better mentor / life coach / cheerleader / confidant. She thoughtfully listened to my goals and aspirations, she always followed up after meetings and email exchanges, and her positivity was infectious! I believed more in myself because I had the support and guidance of someone who I genuinely wanted good for me. I cannot recommend Connie enough!"

    "Connie did everything well: communication, feedback, advice, encouragement, excitement. Both coaches motivated me to go above and beyond on my app and writing pieces because I knew how valuable their advice was. Cambridge Coaching is a fantastically run company, and the coaches I was paired with could not have fit better for me. I will recommend this company to anyone who is looking for serious application help for medical school."
