Coach Bio

 

Hi! My name is Arielle and I am an Indigenous medical student at the Max Rady College of Medicine at UofManitoba. I have completed an undergraduate degree in Biomedical Biology (B.Sc.), a second undergraduate degree in Psychology (B.A.), and a Master’s degree in Biology – Cellular Biology (M.Sc.) all with Laurentian University. It’s safe to say, I love to learn.

As an Indigenous medical student, I offer a unique perspective to interview preparation and approaching both MMI and panel-style questions through a holistic lens. What does this mean for you and how might my approach benefit your interview preparation, you might ask? Given the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s push for Indigenous culture to be incorporated into medical training across Canada, it is incredibly important for you to have an understanding about Indigenous culture, practices, and most importantly how the social determinants of health drive health disparities for minority populations, including Indigenous peoples.

I am here to help you approach challenging interview questions, to break down the stressful barriers faced during interviews, and to create an environment of trust and understanding. I want to help make you the absolute best candidate possible! Whether you’re struggling with creating a roadmap for answering particular question categories, how to highlight your experiences in the context of the CanMed Roles, or where to even begin (I know – this is an overwhelming experience!) I’m here to be your guide to your acceptance to medical school.

    Arielle is such a kind person and a wonderful interview prep coach! The advice and feedback she gave me during our session was so helpful. She worked with me to develop a framework and structure for answering questions which was very insightful. She also followed up with additional practice questions and resources to help me prepare further. I would definitely book a session with Arielle if you need any help with the interview process! 🙂

    Arielle is very flexible and approachable as a prep coach. As someone who has not had much experience with the MMI, Arielle tailored sessions to my needs and provided feedback after every session. Arielle genuinely wants to help you improve, and I have noticed a difference after just a few sessions. You won’t regret booking!

    Arielle is an amazing coach! She is very supportive and friendly. She makes you feel comfortable throughout the session and is willing to structure the lesson to whatever your struggling with whether it be practice MMI questions or how to structure answers. Arielle is more than willing to spend an extra couple of minutes after the lesson to finish up. She explains things clearly and is very encouraging. I would 100% recommend her , she is very knowledgeable!

    Arielle went above and beyond to ensure the coaching session was tailored to my interests and needs! We covered everything I wanted to cover in my session with her. Arielle is an exceptionally motivating coach who gives honest, thoughtful, and concrete feedback that you can easily apply to improve your responses. She also provided me with additional resources following our session which will be immensely useful to continue my preparations. This was by far one of the best coaching sessions I’ve experienced with MedCoach! Thanks again Arielle!

    Arielle is truly the most incredible coach. She has made preparing for my Casper and MMI a fun and exciting process and I look forward to our sessions together. Arielle always goes out of her way to ensure that the session is personalized and addresses any concerns/questions you may have. Arielle also sends a document at the end of each session that reviews what was covered and any resources (podcasts, articles) that will allow you to gain more insight into the medical field. 110% would recommend

    Arielle is a fantastic coach! I was in a situation where I had to book a coaching session very last minute, and despite this, Arielle was still able to accommodate me and prepare a session that catered to my interview needs. Also, her feedback (both verbal feedback during the session and written feedback after the session) were super helpful. I would 100% recommend her to anyone looking for help with interviews.

    Arielle was amazing at helping me prepare for my interview! She gave me a lot of great questions to prep for, even better feedback on how I could improve and key points I might have missed out on. She was really accommodating with time changes and also gave me specific notes and resources I could use to refine my skills. I’m really glad I choose to prep with you Arielle. Thanks for all the help!

    Arielle goes above and beyond with her consulting! She even provides a document after sessions that provides detailed feedback as well as additional resources. In particular, she is an expert on issues pertaining to equity, diversity, and inclusion, which are integral themes in medical school interviews. I’d encourage any applicant to book with her!
