Achieve your goals minus the hustle and burnout in this 16-week personalized coaching program

Is your workload out of control?

You're not alone.

There is always more work than time in academe, leading to lots of stressed-out faculty.

And the current context adds even more pressure to the mix especially if you're

  • Caring for young children and/or elderly family members
  • A woman of color or other marginalized faculty
  • At an institution that asks for much more than it gives

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

But it doesn't have to be like this. Let's partner to design a better faculty life -

one with freedom, flexibility, and the type of work-life harmony you'd started to believe was unattainable in academe.

What you can expect...

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 faster and healthier than you ever thought possible.

 "[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. Everything I learned will support me for a long time going forward.

How Makeover works...
