The Evolution of You

Guiding Women in Academia through Professional Transitions


Do you want to:

Power up for tenure?
Create more
work-life balance?
Lead with power?

Teach more effectively?

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 mindful way to live?

I can help!

As a 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:

  • Complete writing projects
  • Boost your productivity
  • Create more work-life balance
  • Enhance your leadership skills
  • Develop your intrapersonal and communication skills
  • Overcome burn-out
  • Go after the promotion you really want!

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…
