Our Company

At EssayMD, we think the key to great writing is great editors. Our clients reap the benefits of seasoned experts who have racked up thousands of hours of editing and consulting experience.

In addition to impressive professional and academic credentials (each of our experts holds at least a Master’s degree), our editors must also prove themselves by producing their own winning graduate school admissions essays. Exemplifying this standard, EssayMD founder, Marci Madsen Martinez, has never been denied admission to any academic program to which she applied, including Ivy League and Tier One institutions.

As an undergrad, Martinez followed an athletics scholarship to Northern Arizona University, where she competed as a member of the track and cross country teams. Following graduation (summa cum laude) from NAU's New Century Honors Program, Martinez applied to several Ph.D. programs in English, receiving offers for fellowships and full funding from top-ranked schools. She ultimately selected The University of Texas at Austin's program for its perennial top-twenty national ranking. She would go on to successfully earn her M.A. in English, complete her English Ph.D. coursework; teach undergraduate Literature, Rhetoric, and Composition courses; and score college-placement essays.

At UT, Martinez led writing workshops and guided UT undergrads with graduate and professional school applications. From her experience as a writing consultant, Martinez recognized that the demand for qualified help with admissions statements exceeded the availability and affordability of said help. That’s why Martinez founded EssayMD in 2005. As one of the pioneers in online admissions consulting, Martinez developed the signature editing process that puts our clients first and keeps costs low.

Fourteen years later, many of our competitors have come and gone, but Martinez continues to relish the personal nature of this business. Each of our clients has a story to tell, and we want to help them make the most of that story...without charging an arm and leg. EssayMD remains focused on helping clients discover and articulate their strengths and stand out from the crowd. Not many companies can claim that their main objective is helping others maximize their potential!
