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!

What Our Students Love About Us:

"Joa completely understands the graduate school application process, what the schools are looking for, and is always completely supportive."


Daniel T.

GMAT/MBA Admissions Client

"With each session, I felt more confident and reassured to trust the process and to continue to keep a focused mind. I would recommend both Emily and Joa to anyone preparing to apply to business school."

Rona M.

GMAT/MBA Admissions Client

"My biggest takeaway from my time with Joa is one word -- confidence. She taught me with confidence and belief in myself, I can achieve my goals."
