Phoebe grew up in Brooklyn, New York and then attended Haverford College where she completed both her MA in English and her pre-medical courses. After graduation, Phoebe moved to Johannesburg, South Africa to work at African Leadership Academy (ALA) where she spent her time teaching writing and rhetoric, designing courses in Global Health, and coaching soccer. Her favorite aspect of the job was mentoring high school students as they made decisions about where to apply and attend university. She went on to attend the University of California Berkeley-University of California San Francisco Joint Medical Program (UCB-UCSF JMP). In 2019, she completed her Masters in Science from UC Berkeley with a research project focused on preterm birth outcomes in Rwanda. She is now completing clinical rotations as a third year medical student at UCSF.
With Cambridge Coaching, Phoebe tutors medical school admissions, chemistry and biology. She brings teaching and admissions experiences from both her time at ALA and medical school. Since each applicant is unique, Phoebe spends a great deal of time strategizing the best way to optimize each applicant’s strengths and weaknesses. Above all, Phoebe believes that there is diversity in what makes an amazing applicant to medical school and emphasizes this personalized approach.
In her free time, Phoebe is passionate about health equity advocacy and loves to read novels, play soccer, and hike with her German Shepherd Louie.
