Jeannice Kan Tse is passionate about helping people reach their personal and professional goals, and has been doing just that since joining Square One Prep in 2017. She believes everyone has a story to tell whether or not they know it yet, and is eager to help people tell theirs with self-awareness and authenticity. Her approach tends to be straightforward, leading to further self-reflection.
Jeannice is a former management consultant, having worked at McKinsey in its New York office, advising companies in varied sectors on strategy and corporate finance topics. She is a trained McKinsey interviewer who has interviewed prospective candidates for the firm. Her professional experience has primarily been in financial services, across institutional clients in foreign exchange trading and fixed income syndication, commercial clients in strategy, and retail clients in product management and sales. She has always set aside time to help friends applying for business school, whether it is to review essays or do mock interviews. She has also served as a Booth interviewer.
Jeannice has an MBA from Chicago Booth and a Bachelor of Accountancy from Nanyang Technological University in Singapore. Awarded a partial scholarship to Booth and a full scholarship for college, Jeannice is focused on helping her clients craft applications that potentially increase their scholarship chances as well.
Jeannice lives in New York City and is originally from Singapore. She speaks Chinese fluently and Spanish at an intermediate level. She is a new parent of twins, so free time is scarce, but she loves exploring new restaurants with her husband and friends, and reading fiction.
