Passionate Coaching Professional
If you are feeling overwhelmed by the demands of your current role and unsure about what your next career options are, I get it. I've been successfully coaching postdoctoral fellows through their career exploration process for the past seven years. My services aim to introduce clarity and self-motivation. In addition, I teach a variety of professional development seminars and workshops to help augment your current training. My goal is to help you achieve your career goals.
Upon completing my PhD in statistics and genetics in 2004, I immediately began a postdoctoral fellowship on an R25 training grant. I saw first hand that career and professional development was necessary to take the next step in a career, but also that postdocs need advocates during this time of training. I joined the National Postdoc Association to advocate for and enhance opportunities for postdocs, including myself. I’m now in my 14th year with the NPA and have served as chair of the board of directors 2018-2019.

Evaluation and Discussion
Are you stepping out of academia and require a resume? While a Google search will turn up many different formats, the first half page (of two total) is how much content and time you have to get an HR professional or hiring manager excited about your candidacy. Resumes are fundamentally different than CVs, but it's unlikely anyone taught you how to create it during your training.
Get in touch today and let's create a resume for a position you're interested in so that you can start taking control of your career.
Professional Development Seminars and Workshops
Get the most out of your training to prepare you for your future career!
Workshops and seminars presented at colleges and universities, as well as for professional societies, are designed to give attendees the tools and techniques to achieve a balanced and fulfilling career. Professional development to learn how to maximize transferable skills and establish your brand is essential to your career progression. Seminars and workshops include overarching 6 components of career exploration, 4 steps in the job search, and specific lectures on networking, informational interviews, resumes, CVs, LinkedIn, job interviews, negotiation, and more. Reach out to schedule a seminar or workshop at your campus.
Learn to tell your stories and highlight your skills during an interview as well as how to handle tough interview questions.
An interview is a conversation, not an interrogation. Here again, Google can provide a lot of questions that you may hear during an interview, but the content isn't tailored to your experience as a candidate with a PhD. Prior to the session, I'll provide a packet covering the most frequently asked questions and discussions of how to respond. During the one-on-one session, you will have the opportunity to formulate your response to these questions, formulate the questions you want to ask, and more.
An interview can throw many surprises at you, but you have an opportunity to prepare to maximize your impact through a one-on-one coaching session to prepare. Schedule an appointment today.
