calling all wrung out faculty!

Reclaim your time with Makeover, a personalized 16-week coaching program that gets you off the hamster wheel and engaged in a faculty life you love. 

There is always more work than time in academia.

And the pressure is even higher if you're:

  • Caring for children and/or elderly family members
  • Buried by heavy service commitments
  • A woman of color or other marginalized faculty
  • Doing work that challenges systems of oppression

If you're stretched so thin you're about to snap, you're not alone.

It doesn't have to be like this. Let's partner to design a better faculty life—

one with the freedom, flexibility, and work-life harmony you deserve.

Get a Makeover coach and gain:

Fierce focus on the important areas of your life, including those beyond work like your well-being and relationships.

Time freedom so you can finally have enough space for deep work, connection, and self-care in your daily life.

Mindset for success that disrupts those sticky internalized beliefs slowing you down or keeping you stuck.

Massive momentum toward achieving your goals in sustainable, healthy ways that align with your values.

"I transitioned from utterly depleted and resigned to feeling hopeful and purposeful about how I will set priorities in my life and make more space for joyful living moving forward."

Heather Bachman, PhD
Associate Professor, University of Pittsburgh

How the program works:

Session 0

Answer some science-based questions to determine where you are in the important areas of your life. 

Session 1

Based on your answers, you and your coach will choose the most life-enhancing goals to focus on in your work together. 

Sessions 2 to 8

This is where the magic happens. You work with your coach to implement powerful practices and systems that propel you toward the work-life you crave.

 "[WellAcademic] helped me change unhelpful habits, articulate and deepen into the values that support all of the work I do, gain self-confidence and self-compassion, and find a healthier and more joyful approach to work in general.

Andrea Harris, PhD
Associate Professor and Chair, University of Wisconsin-Madison

Coaching is just the beginning.

Here's exactly what the program includes:

  • 50-minute coaching sessions every 2 weeks that offer you the blueprint and support to build a successful, fulfilling life based on your unique context
  • Post-session recaps with clear guidance on the small steps you can take between sessions to bring BIG results
  • Insight questionnaire at the start so you know exactly how you're doing in the major areas of your life
  • Tools and resources designed for fast, sustainable results
  • Email support for when you have questions or need an extra layer of accountability

Investment: $3500

Due to the popularity of this program, there is typically a 4-week waitlist.

"My coach really listened and helped me to realign my personal values with my approach to work in the academy...I could not be more grateful for WellAcademic!"

Have a super casual, no pressure conversation about what you need and whether we're a great fit.



With coaching personalized to your needs, you'll be amazed at how fast your overwhelm turns to calm, confidence, and real progress on what matters.


Here are three differences our clients rave about:

(1) Makeover gives you exactly what you need—and nothing you don't—to design a kick-butt faculty life. This high level of personalization is miles apart from one-size-fits-all group programs.

(2) Our coaches are moms, women of color faculty, and justice scholars, so we see you and the invisibilized barriers to your success and well-being.

(3) We're obsessed with making change easier with practical tools grounded in psychological science and proven to work with hundreds of faculty just like you.

We have coached faculty from fields as diverse as psychology, history, dance, biology, and nursing, from research to comprehensive universities.

No. But we're not for everyone. We work best with faculty who seek sustainable, healthy progress (over productivity-at-all-cost approaches); and whole-person support that engages your work, well-being, and cultural identities (e.g., gender, race, sexuality, and nationality).

Yes. We want you to have the best coaching experience possible. That means making sure WellAcademic is the best fit for what you seek. And in case you're wondering, these conversations are super casual with NO awkward high-pressure salesy talk. Pinky swear.

Bottom line?

You deserve a wildly successful and nourishing faculty life NOW,

...not after tenure
...not after promotion to full
...not after that publication
...not next semester, next year, someday.

Life is too precious to waste another second in overload.
