Our mission:

To create a path for women faculty to carve out authentic, fulfilling careers that align with their values.

The vision

For many women, gender, race and parenting still get in the way of having the academic careers they yearn for. I believe it does not have to be that way. As a career coach who has lived the faculty life, I am passionate about providing coaching and faculty development that fosters fulfilling, successful academic careers.

Increase productivity?
Create more
work-life balance?
Map out next steps?

Power up for tenure?

Is your life in academia filled with “If onlies”? If only I wrote more, published more, had more support… Or, worse, are you feeling like an imposter, wishing for a more balanced and authentic way to live?

I can help!

As a career coach, I am trained to create a safe, confidential space where you can see possibilities and act on them.

I will hold your vision, ask tough questions, hold you accountable, and be there for you so that you can:

  • Get your writing done
  • Boost your productivity
  • Create more work-life balance
  • Align your decision-making with your career goals
  • Set and stick to priorities
  • Overcome burn-out
  • Feel confident and empowered!

Who I am:

When I was growing up, people used to tell me I was a dreamer. Turns out, they were exactly right; I am a dreamer. And over time, I have learned — sometimes the easy way, sometimes the hard way — that if you simply give dreams attention, not much happens!

But Dreams + Intention = A New Reality.

And for me, intention has often come out of articulating my dreams to others — teachers, coaches, colleagues, people I have come to see as my “dream team.” Their insights and support helped me to refine my dreams, to keep focused, and to hold myself accountable.

My desire to pass on to others what had been gifted to me, to become the “dream team” for others, is what drove me to leave my 25-year career in higher education. As a coach, I now have the privilege to guide my clients as they hone in on the intentions behind their dreams, the “why” that will turn their “if onlies” to tangible actions. Together, we create a path for the new reality they dream for themselves: a career in academia, a stronger publication record, a finished dissertation, a career shift…
