After a career as a litigation attorney and partner in a California law firm, Marla became familiar with the college admission/ application and essay process when her three children began applying for college. Marla found creative ways to help them highlight their strengths and individual voices through their personal statements. After her children were accepted into their "perfect fit schools", Marla became sought after in her local community to guide others through the college admission process. For the past decade, hundreds of Marla’s students have been accepted to colleges from Harvard to Stanford, the UC's, and most schools in between. Marla is frequently asked to share her experience and her tried and true methods through seminars and workshops about the college essay writing process throughout Southern California. In 2018, after eight years of serving as the director of the writing department for a private college counseling company, Marla launched her company, The Write Pro.
Marla explains that the goal of the personal statement is to introduce the student in such a way that allows an admission officer to understand the applicant in just a few hundred words. Marla helps her students capture their individual essence through a strategic process that begins with a brainstorming session where she carefully poses questions tailored to the student in order to discover experiences that best demonstrate each student’s background or story. She then uses outlines and drafting methods to help students recognize which details are important to their essay and why these pieces are important.
At ScoutScholar.com Marla provides timeline information, essay writing tips and strategies to Premium members and participates as one of the experts in our exclusive Facebook group. You can find Marla on facebook and on instagram or contact her directly by mail at firstname.lastname@example.org .
