Everything you need to achieve your BIG goals faster

without working longer, sacrificing your health, or forsaking your family.

Are you...

Frustrated you can't advance your big ideas because small tasks are sucking up all your precious time? 

Teetering on the edge of burnout from trying to meet the competing demands of work and life?

Racked with self-doubt about whether your work is good enough to share with others?  

Tired (and ashamed) of being adrift in a sea of unfinished projects with no shore in sight?



After 16 years as a faculty member (and 10 as a faculty coach), I know all too well how hard it is to accomplish your goals while also attending to loved ones, students, and your own difficult emotions around your work and world events, especially if you're

👉🏽 A caregiver. 

👉🏽 A woman of color or other minoritized faculty.

👉🏽 At an institution that asks for much more than it gives.


No wonder so many of us are working longer and longer hours to the detriment of our well-being and relationships.


Am I right?

Well, I'm here to tell you there's a better way.

One where you can achieve your BIG professional goals faster and healthier than ever so you can finally have a life outside of work.


  • Getting to the finish line on your most important projects, even those that have languished on your to-do list for years. 
  • Having ample time to care for loved ones and yourself without worry about what didn't get done at work.  
  • Evicting Imposter Syndrome and her BFF Perfectionism from your headspace. 
  • Experiencing joy and connection (instead of frustration and isolation) while working.
What if this glorious transformation were possible - even easy?

Hi! I'm Roxanne. 

I developed Focus Fridays in response to the many faculty who reached out to me over the years to share the stress, shame, and isolation they were feeling around their work. 
It was clear these faculty needed a supportive workspace where they could find achievement, community, and maybe even joy. 
So, I poured my 20+ years of psychological training, research, and practice into making Focus Fridays that space. Now all you need to do is attend.
That's it!
Okay...maybe you need to do the prep exercises too. But that only takes 10 minutes. I promise.   
I look forward to working with you and watching your surprise at what you're capable of accomplishing. 
Since I started Focus Fridays, I have been both more productive and more relaxed by relying on this time to ground me in a regular writing practice. 
Adrianna M. Santos, PhD, Assistant Professor
I loved the energy of the sessions and it helped me focus each week in a way that felt supportive and fun.

Focus Fridays is the most empowering, energizing, and rewarding professional development program that I know.
