Margo Navage Padala, essay consultant, brings a passion for writing and a knack for helping students find their voice and tell their story. A Dartmouth interviewer for years, she relates well to this age group and understands the importance of writing a memorable essay.

Margo graduated from Dartmouth College in 1991 with a B.A. in English and a minor in Italian and Art History. Upon graduation, she moved to NYC to begin a 12 year career as an equity trader rising to a vice president of equity trading at Prudential Securities.

She now runs her own college essay service, offering students across the country as much or as little support as they need ranging from a drastic edit of a completed essay to a more comprehensive brainstorming package. She lives in Garden City, New York with her husband and two boys.
