A bit about yourself: I’m a first year resident in Family Medicine. I attended McGill medical school. Prior to medicine, I culminated my 16 years of piano studying in a Bachelor of Music degree. Aside from music, I am a lover of fitness, yoga, global health and photography!

My past coaching /teaching experiences include:

– “MedCoached” 17 students in the recent application cycle; 30% acceptance rate

– Student Ultrasound Instructor with McGill

– Piano teacher for inner city children in Montreal

– Advisor for the West Africa AIDS Foundation – Queen’s Chapter

– Peer Mentor with university counselling services

– Dance teacher of various styles

– Yoga instructor

Now that I have completed my medical degree, I would like to share my knowledge with the pre-medical students who are actively trying to improve and push themselves to be the best they can be. Based on my own experiences, I really value the importance of mentorship in shaping a person’s career, and I hope to have the chance to guide someone on the right path
Application experience:
I applied for McGill medical school as an out-of-province applicant (originally from Toronto. Represent! #6ix), and Ottawa medical school.

I received acceptances from both institutions on my first try!

During that time, I was in my 5th year of undergrad degree – finishing up my second undergrad degree in Bachelor of Sciences.

  1. Linda provided an extremely thorough session that left me feeling confident heading in to my interview. We went through different styles of questions that I may encounter in the interview including ethical scenarios, role playing scenarios, and traditional interview style questions all while providing constructive criticism and feedback on how to make sure that I would be my best self on interview day. I would highly recommend choosing Linda as your medCoach if you want to feel as prepared as possible for your interview. 10/10

I found her helpful and knowledgeable in how to approach role play scenarios specifically. She is well spoken and gave me great feedback. I recommend Linda as medcoach.
