Adeena Reitberger was born in Baltimore, Maryland and grew up in the Washington, D.C metropolitan area. She received her MFA in Fiction from Western Michigan University after graduating with honors from the University of Maryland, where she was also selected to be the English Department's commencement speaker. Adeena has taught English and Creative Writing for ten years, both at the college and high school level. Currently, she serves as editor of the nationally acclaimed literary magazine American Short Fiction. When she is not teaching, editing, or working on her story collection, you can find her hiking around Texas with her dog Ruby.

 

Adeena became part of the College MatchPoint team in May 2016. "I enjoy working one-on-one with students getting ready to take this next step in their lives. There is something inspiring and special about helping people discover or strengthen their voices and express the things that make them unique, and the college essay in many ways is about articulating those things confidently and with individualism. What I find most rewarding is that students not only come away from this process with a really terrific essay, but through exploratory brainstorming and writing they also find a clearer academic direction and better sense of who they are in the world and what they value."
