I help faculty and academic leaders use their personal strengths and values to build 

successful and joyful careers.

I’ve been a faculty member since 1996 and have been mentoring other faculty and academic leaders (department chairs/heads, deans, and others) for over two decades. I decided to start my coaching business because I love academic life, and I love helping others in higher education find success, joy, and purpose in their work.
The three things that motivate everything I do are my love for faculty life, my belief in the value of higher education, and my desire to help others be both successful and joyful in their academic careers.
I use my extensive experience as an academic clinical psychologist, NIH-funded researcher, award-winning classroom teacher and mentor, and long-time academic leader along with what I’ve learned from the dozens of faculty, department chairs/heads, and deans that I have mentored and coached over the years to inform my practice.

I use a strengths-based and cognitive coaching approach with my clients. As I learn more about you in our work together, I will help you set clear goals that make sense for you, identify and navigate the roadblocks you may be facing, and develop an action plan that builds on your personal strengths and values. My primary goal is to help you connect your work and career to a sense of confidence, meaning, and joy in your life.
