Hi! I’m Nichole Guillory, PhD.

I have spent my 15+ years in academia trying to create welcoming and supportive environments for faculty whose work focuses on social justice.

From helping leaders to construct justice-oriented frameworks for institutional change to helping faculty align their research, teaching, and service with their most important commitments, I coach with a purpose: to pay forward the support I have received from so many colleagues over the years.

As a Black feminist scholar and a mom who juggles life and work responsibilities often, I offer support that contextualizes positionality within systems and that prioritizes self-care and self-compassion.

I specialize in support for showcasing academic work, from writing a compelling job application to preparing a persuasive promotion and tenure dossier.

I’ve been teaching since 1993, first as a high school English and African American history teacher and now as a Professor of Curriculum and Instruction at Kennesaw State University. My research lies at the intersections of race and gender and focuses on Black mothering as liberatory praxis.
