Educators & Coaches
Higher Ed Administrator & Emotional Intelligence Educator
Hello friends! I have been working in higher education for the past 18 years as a college counselor, director, and adjunct faculty member. I am a lifelong learner myself which fuels my passion for working with students of all ages and education levels.
I have spent almost two decades helping people find a career path and set personal goals. As a Manager and Director I have spent over a decade studying, practicing, and teaching Emotional Intelligence skills to both staff and students. Observing people's thinking patterns and how it impacts their choices is what led me to emotional intelligence.
I've been passionate about psychology and education for over 20 years. My personal belief is that the turmoil we see today stems from our lack of Emotional Intelligence skills and the inability to manage our own thoughts, emotions, and choices. I believe people spend too much time in a stressed and reactive state, rather than managing their emotions and creating their day. The great news is that research has shown that while your IQ generally will not change, everyone can improve their Emotional Intelligence (also known as EI or EQ) skills.
I'm very excited to teach others how to understand their emotions and how to use communication techniques effectively. This gives people confidence, focus, and hope for the future- which creates more happiness!
