What Melisa’s clients have to say about her

I cannot say enough good things about working with Melisa. Melisa was able to help pick out my strengths and guide me on which story to use for each essay, and her help in structuring and then editing the essays was invaluable... Not to mention, Melisa was incredibly kind and encouraged me throughout the process.
Extremely responsive and supportive, she went above and beyond to provide helpful feedback on both essays and interview preparation. She is a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend her.
