Namita Mehta is a partner at The Red Pen, a study-abroad consulting company. In her role as the undergraduate services manager, as well as her work in business development and sales, she helps students and parents to navigate their international application journeys. As the first point of contact for Indian high school students and their families, Mehta has developed systems of early advising to give students a leg up on their futures.
Previously, Mehta worked at the university guidance counseling department at B.D. Somani International School in Mumbai for over three years. As an in-house counselor, she advised students on effective profile development, managed the international university application process, and developed relationships with university admissions offices.
Although she has a strong background and interest in the sciences, Mehta’s strength in working with people led her toward student advisement. Mehta pursues her goal of helping young people decide their own futures through education, and works to motivate them to uncover their interests and pursue their passions.
Mehta attended Oxford University, where she received her integrated master’s degree in molecular and cellular biochemistry.
