Meet Your Lead Expert!

Hey there, I'm Joa and I've been helping students with test prep and admissions consulting for over 10 years. Emily and I co-founded JEM Achievement to provide tailored support to students just like you.

Whether you're doubting your ability to write a convincing Statement of Purpose, or anxious about contacting recommenders to write you letters of support, or simply overwhelmed by the sheer number of details to track for each application, I've seen it all and helped others tackle those issues and so much more.

I can't wait to help you too!
