Jennifer’s Bios

80 words: Jennifer knows firsthand what a difficult job being a professor is; she’s been a visiting faculty member, a sessional instructor, and tenured over the course of her career. When she left her tenured position to move to Canada, restarting her career brought her face-to-face with all the harsh realities. After working with coaches, and becoming one herself, Jennifer works with professors and administrators to become leaders of their own careers, helping them to develop and sharpen their most critical instrument: themselves.

 

120 words: Jennifer knows firsthand what a difficult job being a professor is; she’s been a visiting faculty member, a sessional instructor, on the tenure track, and tenured over the course of her career. When she left her tenured position to move to Canada, the attempt to restart her career in a new country brought her face-to-face with the harsh realities of university budgets, disciplinary gatekeeping, unclear educational goals, and byzantine systems. After working with coaches to manage her own transition out of the academy and becoming a coach herself, Jennifer works with professors and administrators to become leaders of their own careers, helping them to develop and sharpen their most critical instrument: themselves.

When she left her tenured position to move to Canada, the attempt to restart her career in a new country brought her face-to-face with the harsh realities of university budgets, disciplinary gatekeeping, unclear educational goals, and byzantine systems. After working with coaches to manage her own transition out of the academy and becoming a coach herself, Jennifer works with professors and administrators to become leaders of their own careers, helping them to develop and sharpen their most critical instrument: themselves. She brings hard-won lessons from her own career and those of her clients to conversations about slowing down to speed up, what prioritization really means, and how to differentiate between your subject-matter expertise and your leadership capacity. In the academy, our minds and bodies are our primary and best tools, and Jennifer works with people to become fully themselves at work and in their lives.
