Past Employment


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.
