Fall 2022 retreat: Sept 30 - Oct 3
For the safety of all participants, you must be vaccinated and boosted to attend this retreat.
I know first hand the various ways the academy can be a dangerous place for WOC. The retreat offered me a chance to be my authentic self and feel the love and support I've missed. Thank you!

Hi! I'm Roxanne.
WellAcademic founder. Psychologist. Full professor. Yoga teacher wanna-be. Mama to two kids born while I was untenured (yes, it was an intense time).
And, best of all, your lead retreat facilitator.
I've been practicing in the areas of health and wellness for 20+ years. As a Black feminist woman of multiracial descent (Black/Asian/White), I'm committed to developing programs, like this retreat, that help women of color find pathways to joy, wellness, connection, and achievement in their work-lives.
And I know from experience that carving out these pathways is possible, even in terrain filled with systemic, institutional, and interpersonal obstacles.
So if you're in need of deep transformation and sisterhood, I invite you to join me on the mountain this fall.
I can't wait to see you.
The fellowship and compassion we were able to feel provided an abundant source of energy to recharge my career. Not short of amazing!
