Profile

Academic, career and life coach for graduate students, recent graduates (particularly PhDs), and academics.  Blogger for University Affairs and active Twitterer on all things doctorates. Speaker at academic conferences and on university campuses. Co-Director of Educational Programs at Beyond the Professoriate.
I'm a community builder and booster who loves making connections and sharing information. I'm fascinated by myths and other powerful ideas, motivations for change and growth, and transitions of all kinds. I'm an incurable optimist who values inclusiveness, fairness, and honesty.
In my work, I empower, inspire, and help my clients achieve their goals; celebrate their successes; and promote their value to the world. I do this by working with clients individually and in groups, and in my writing, public speaking, and community engagement on social media.

06/14/2022 Not very engaging 
06/13/2022 Was delivered on time but unfortunately failed the class. 
06/13/2022 LATE. 
06/12/2022 met the writing criteria and delivered on time. I hope to get an A.
06/11/2022 Assignment done exactly as instructions said. Thank you so much!

06/10/2022 good work
05/31/2022 did a great job on a short assigment that was needed from human development
05/12/2022 good work
05/12/2022 I was tagged for Plarigism 
05/08/2022 This was a much better paper becase I gave the professor free range to write and it turned out great. Unfortunatley, none of my sources were used and I will get a failing grade. I'm still giving a 9 out of 10 becasue I believe it is the websites fault, and not the professors, for not being able to upload a Google doc which had my sources. I sent them via e-mail however, communication isn't the greatest. 
05/08/2022 The paper was well written and delivered on-time. It did not incorporate as much of my original paper as I would have preferred so that is why I'm giving a 7 out of 10 as a rating. Personally, I would have preferred a personal phone call with the professor to ensure they knew what I wanted before they just completed something completely different. I wanted this to be my story and they turned it into theirs. Unfortunatley, my grade will suffer as the sources needed to be previously approved. I submitted 8 pages of content and five sources and non of my own work was used and only 1 of the sources was used, so, I will get a failing grade however, that's what I get for paying someone else to do my work. Also, the web-site does not let you upload Google Docs which is very disappointing. I will probably not use this site again.

04/26/2022 Wrote an amazing analysis paper and finished way before deadline. A 10/10 job.
04/26/2022 I CLEARLY STATED I NEEDED THE ASSIGNMENT BY 10:30 PM. I CONTACTED THIS PERSON TO ENSURE IT COULD BE DONE BY THEN. NEVERTHELESS THE ASSIGNMENT IS LATE AND WORTH 150 POINTS I WILL NEVER USE THIS "PROFESSOR" AGAIN AND DO NOT AGREE THAT I SHOULD HAVE TO PAY THEIR FEE!!! NO COMMUNICATION, NO ANYTHING BUT A SUBPAR LATE ASSIGNMENT!!!
04/25/2022 Lifesaver
04/24/2022 Very knowledgeable about the topics and had the project to me way before the deadline!!
04/22/2022 Amazing work for such a short time table, could not be happier as far as the outcome of this project
04/21/2022 I will NEVER use this again. My deadline wasn't met. I didn't receive anything. Abs I lost $150. I clearly presented the assignment and the deadline that I needed the paper. I lost $150.
04/20/2022 Definitely met my expectations 
04/19/2022 Perfect score on the powerpoint! On time, no lateness
