After almost 25 years in the academy as a student, graduate student, educator, research assistant, and now a motherscholar and woman faculty of color, earning my degrees and tenure were difficult. There were many barriers, hidden pathways, and unspoken rules that I had to learn. Additionally, I had to learn how to “balance” my life, family, kids, and even relationships. For years I have been supporting other faculty of color, women, motherscholars, and other diverse faculty and students in academia, especially those who are doing socially just work. In supporting them I noticed a need for academic coaching that improves publication productivity, streamlines and organizes publishing, conferencing, teaching, and dissertating. I also noticed a need for race and identity coaching that will enhance academic and racial well-being and give skillsets on how to navigate and advocate under academic harassment, bulling, and racial or gender microaggressions.
Not wanting anyone else to struggle alone, I now provide services to support the following:
- faculty in obtaining tenure,
- universities in practicing racially inclusive practices, and
- graduate students in obtaining a degree and academic positions.
I even provide race and identity coaching for those who need support while they tirelessly engage in racially just advocacy. I believe that paying it forward can create a more humane academy and society, one where we need not compromise who we are. Don’t go it alone. Contact me today!
