Julia grew up in New York City and attended Princeton University, where she graduated Phi Beta Kappa and summa cum laude in 2008. After college, she worked in Sub-Saharan Africa to improve access to healthcare in rural communities. She went on to Harvard Medical School and is currently completing her Internal Medicine Residency at NYU, before beginning a fellowship in Hospice and Palliative Care at Ichan School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.

Julia has always loved to teach. When she was in the 10th grade, she led writing workshops for students who were falling behind in school. She devoted her extracurricular time at Princeton to running a program aimed at helping students be the first in their families to attend college. When she graduated, Julia promoted health literacy by teaching Spanish-speakers how to navigate Bellevue, New York City’s oldest hospital. She has been a Cambridge Coaching tutor since 2012, and her area of expertise is medical school admissions coaching.  

In her free time, you can find Julia playing with her pup, a Rhodesian Ridgeback, cooking a new recipe or listening to Brazilian music.

    "Julia is a wonderful tutor. I worked with her to prepare for my PA school interview. She helped me to tell my story in a concise way that entails all the important aspects and is easy for the interviewer to understand. All of her feedback was personalized, highly effective and efficient - I learned a lot. Julia helped me on every level of the interview preparation and follow up. She was accommodating with meetings and replied fast to my emails. I learned a lot about interviewing from her and she has been a tremendous help for me!!! I am thankful for all of her support."

    "Julia kept me on schedule and returned everything very quickly. I was able to submit my application, which I felt really good about, on the first day possible. I used the MD advising services and have been very happy with it. Julia helped me craft my entire primary application: activities, personal statement, and school choices. Working with a tutor has taken a lot of the stress out of the application process. I plan to continue with Cambridge Coaching through interview prep."
