Adrianne Owings

Adrianne is an educational consultant and TV/film director, producer, writer, and actress currently based in LA. Originally hailing from Little Rock, AR, her own college applications earned her admission to four Ivy League schools in her senior year of high school. She began her career in educational consulting at CollegeVine as an Essay & Applications Specialist in her first year at Yale. She has since worked with GPS Education and College Planning Source as an Essay Specialist where she helped high school students around the world create their own successful college application essays.  Although her academic studies focused largely on acting, she honed her writing skills until the tutelage of Yale professors such as Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Donald Margulies and journalist Margaret Spillane, and she was the Opinion Editor and a staff writer at The Yale Politic, an undergraduate cultural and political journal. She uses her experience in multiple disciplines to help students achieve their personal and academic goals. She also worked at the Undergraduate Admissions Office as a Tour Guide, Yale Ambassador, and currently as an Alumni Interviewer.
