About Me

Born in New York City, raised in Boston, and currently based in Paris, over the last 18 years I have edited thousands of essays, helping clients gain admission to top programs in the US and abroad - and I bring a diverse range of expertise to every project I take on.

A graduate of Phillips Academy (Andover), I majored in English at Yale University, where I also pursued my passion for theatre, creative writing, psychology and art history. After graduating, I worked as an executive recruiter, appointed Director of Research at the boutique headhunting firm, The Higdon Group (whose clients included the The Carlyle Group, Goldman Sachs, Merrill Lynch and Kodak). Returning to graduate school, I earned my Master’s in Creative Writing and PhD in Theatre Studies at Royal Holloway, University of London, where I also served as a Visiting Lecturer and received both the Royal Holloway International Excellence Award and a Crossland Research Fellowship.

A master storyteller, I am passionate about helping others find their voice, to become better writers. In addition to consulting and editing, I am a Professor of Rhetoric in the Media and Communications Department at Sciences Po University in Paris, and run intensive playwriting workshops at the National Theatre in London. I love mentoring emerging writers and serve on the Reader’s Panel for the National Theatre in London, the First Pages International Literary Award, and the Verity Bargate Playwriting Award.

Working with clients to perfect their essays is truly a labour of love for me - as a word-nerd obsessed with language and the power of words, I relish the intricacies involved in the editing - and I especially love being able to share my talents to help the interesting and inspiring individuals I work with get closer to realising their dreams. Everyone's story is unique, and I really strive to bring out the magic in each client's journey.

*A note about submitting & checking my availability in advance: If you click the ‘Request Editing’ button on my page, you will arrive at a drop-down menu that asks “When do you need this edited?”

This will show you the upcoming dates I am available to return your essay (ie, you select the date you would like to receive the completed edit). Please be aware I cannot “hold” slots for people - it is first come, first served.

But please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions - I am always happy to help! :)

5 starsTrue Wordsmith, Beyond Expectations!

I am so glad that I worked with Nina to edit my essays. She is a master storyteller, and I was amazed by the quality of the essays she turned around in such a short time. Moreover, she always went above and beyond. Working with Nina was more like working with a trustable friend. She not only edits your essay and brings it to another level but also provides thoughtful comments and explanations on her changes to help you understand the rationale. I was also very grateful for her responsiveness during the holiday season and flexibility with the turnaround dates to meet my deadline. I truly appreciate Nina's help and her encouraging words in her replies. I would absolutely recommend Nina to any applicants seeking top-notch revision for their essays. Nina is the BEST!

5 starsAbsolutely the Best!

Nina is a fantastic editor. Not only does she edit with such finesse but she explains why she made the edits and offers other options that are just as suitable. I have really enjoyed working with her. She is so kind in her replies and also thoughtful. Her edits are amazing! She has really improved both the style of my essays and the essence. You will not be disappointed by her work.

5 starsLook no further!!

I’m convinced Nina is THE BEST in the business! She has an incredible gift at understanding the essence of her writer, how they think and how to best help their words spring to life on page. She is willing to do whatever it takes to make sure your voice is heard loud and clear. She is a master writer and editor and her level of responsiveness is unmatched. She’s also one of the kindest, most professional & incredible human beings you will ever meet. I feel like I hit the lottery of editors by finding her. You will be so thankful you have too!
