Gwen has been helping clients, family members and friends prepare application essays and resumes since 2000.

Her son and daughter have been accepted into undergraduate and graduate programs at Cornell, Columbia (both children), Georgetown, George Washington, Wesleyan, and Northwestern, among others.

Gwen’s own application work got her into Northwestern University, and the University of Connecticut School of Law, from both of which institutions she graduated with Honors. She received several awards in law school for excellence in her classes.

Gwen’s superb and persuasive writing skills have been honed during her years as a successful family lawyer in the US. Her legal memoranda and briefs, prepared on her clients’ behalf, have been consistently praised by the Connecticut courts and, more importantly, almost always resulted in a successful outcome for her clients.

Besides her work at ARINGO, Gwen has written and edited for non-governmental organizations. Her freelance editing skills also continue to be sought after by friends who wish to take advantage of her ability to create compelling narratives. Most recently she helped a family friend get accepted to Vassar College.

Outside the professional sphere, Gwen’s devotion to writing shows in the creative, entertaining stories she crafts for her 9 year old daughter’s delight.
