I use industrial /organizational psychology to increase results from the lens of justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion.
I have extensive experience with founding schools (preschool through high school) and with school leadership. I have coached more than three dozen school founders and educational organization leaders from across the country, and in charter schools, private schools, nonprofit and for-profit organizations, and traditional public schools. I am a former teacher, diversity coordinator, college professor, and founding school principal in PK-12 schools. In addition, I’m also Texas superintendent certified and a practicing marriage and family therapist. I have an extensive network across the country that is composed of funders, fellowship providers, people in facility finance and charter school support, community engagement experts, former superintendents, talent management leaders, and other founders. I specialize in diversity, talent management, leadership development, and organizational culture, identity development, recruitment, and mission alignment. I also have experience working with educational nonprofit and for-profit organizations focused on social justice, access, and diversity. My core beliefs in education are based on the ideas of diversity, equity, access, and rigor. In addition, I am a practicing marriage and family therapist. This work shows up in my work in the development of work/life balance and in the overall development and well-being of the organizations that I work with. Finally, I will complete a Master of Science degree in industrial & organizational psychology with specialization in evidence-based coaching in 2024.
I want to provide startups & established organizations the direction, support, and theory-based strategies to be more effective. I meet my clients where they are. I believe in building on organizational strengths and supporting growth areas, while also emphasize the absolute necessity of a healthy work/life balance and organizational culture. My consulting is tailored to each organization and their need and is based off theory and research from within the industrial/organizational psychology field.
I am great at collaborating with leaders to deeply understanding an organization's strengths and limitations. I partner with your organization to do a deep dive into your strengths in all departments, overall structure, policies and procedures, culture, and more. I work from a relational model and focus on your team and its strengths and growth areas. I also specialize in creating work/life balance, planning for diversity and inclusion, focusing on instructional leadership, creating positive work culture, leader and employee identity development, hiring strategically, and aligning mission and vision to organization policies and procedures. I can support you as a thought partner, strategist, connector, mentor, and more, and I look forward to working with you.
