Your academic career has depended on your ability to develop a logical and systematic process for evaluating data and information, testing hypotheses, and arriving at a well-informed conclusion. That’s why it’s crucial that you do the same as you transition into the next phase of your career.
I intimately understand the unique challenges faced by today’s graduate students and postdoctoral scholars in the STEM, social sciences, and humanities. As a career counselor and coach, I’ve helped scholars develop the clarity and confidence they need when facing some of the toughest decisions of their lives, such as electing to stay in academia, abandon the tenure track, or pursue a career in industry.
Careers in Bloom workshops combine years of insight and real world experience working with postdocs and graduate students, and each is carefully structured and tailored to address your unique challenges. These workshops speak your language and present relatable examples specific to your experiences and training. Gain expert guidance to prepare for, embark on, and succeed in the next phases of your career. Design your own career plan, ensuring your academic accomplishments are presented in a manner that makes you stand out in a highly competitive job market.
I’ve worked as a clinically trained counselor since 2001, concentrating primarily on the needs of graduate students and postdocs as the Associate Director of Postdoctoral Affairs at UNC Chapel Hill since 2006. I hold a MSEd in Counseling and am a Licensed Professional Counselor. I’ve been asked to speak at the NIEHS Biomedical Career Symposium since 2010 and I am a regular speaker at the National Postdoctoral Association’s Annual Meeting. In addition, I present regularly for a broad range of programs at Duke University including the Office of Postdoctoral Services, Duke’s Pratt School of Engineering, and the Graduate School.
