Coach Bio

I’m Annita, a non-traditional medical student and an enthusiastic MedCoach! I moved to Canada from my native Brazil in 2013.  Like many new Canadians before me, I discovered a deep motivation to make a positive mark on society.  I decided to switch careers from journalism to the health care sector, with the dream of one day becoming a doctor.  Last year, I graduated with a degree in nursing from Ryerson University in Toronto and began medical school at the University of Calgary. As a journalist, I wrote for websites, news outlets and social media. And I enjoy editing just as much as I do writing.  With this background, I’ll help to polish your written application, allowing you to reveal the best version of yourself to the admissions committee. When I applied to medical school, sessions with MedCoach instilled me with confidence.  I eventually felt that – through effective coaching – I could convey my passion for medicine into a compelling narrative.  As a coach, I can’t wait to help you in this same way, so that you understand your own unique abilities and can persuasively articulate your desire to become a doctor. Through coaching, I also hope to inspire mature and non-traditional students to pursue their medical school dreams.  Like me, you may have taken a few detours on your path to medical school.  And like me, you can use the wisdom and experience you’ve gained on those detours to your advantage during interview season. Nothing beats feeling prepared and relaxed on your interview day, and you can accomplish this with coaching! I look forward to working with you, Annita

  1. I’ve had one session with Annita so far and I can already tell she has a lot of meaningful insight to share, is dedicated to helping you improve, and is positive and non judgmental while still being honest and constructive with you. I feel very comfortable working with Annita and will be booking more sessions. I’m excited to practice, improve, and hone in on my skills with her!

  2. I recently had a coaching session with Annita to help me prepare for my upcoming interview. She gave lots of constructive feedback and had some great ideas for how I could reflect upon and frame my personal experiences. As well, I now feel like I have a much better idea of how I can make the most of my time leading up to the interview. I would definitely recommend working with her!

  3. Working with Annita has been such a great experience. She is incredibly knowledgeable and gives great feedback. She comes well prepared for each session and I feel like the time spent I spend with her is highly constructive. She is very supportive and has helped me to feel more confident going into the interview. I am very glad I decided to invest in sessions with her as I am feeling much more prepared than I imagined I would! I would highly recommend her to anyone who is preparing for an MMI or needs support with the med school admission process in general.

  4. I’ve had one session with Annita so far, but I booked a second one immediately after. She puts time into understanding you as an individual and works to personalize your lesson from there. She brings a non-traditional medical student background to the table and teaches you how to reinforce your interview skills with your own background and personal reflections, which will ultimately make you stand-out as a unique applicant on interview day! These lessons were a great investment of my money and I would recommend Annita’s insights to anyone preparing for MMIs!

  5. Annita helped me a lot in preparing for my Calgary interview. She was really good at identifying things I could improve and tailoring lessons to the aspects I felt I needed to work on. My two sessions with her were both really valuable and helped me improve how I frame and organise my answers.
