Coaching for Community Accountable Scholars!

I believe that working with a select set of visionary underrepresented graduate students and scholars will have a game changing impact on the way knowledge circulates and intellectual work transforms community in our lifetime.   Through my one-on-one coaching and feedback modules I provide

  • crucial training in purpose, community building and sustainability for community accountable scholars
  • accountability coaching and feedback to get important dissertations into the world, and more importantly crucial visionary scholars successfully OUT of graduate school and into the world!
  • specialized feedback on syllabi, personal statements, theses and dissertations on topics I am passionate about

See if the coaching modules below are aligned with where you are in your process!

*I will only be doing inspiring one-on-one work with a very select number of aligned visionaries.  Any one-on-one engagement requires half hour assessment call (cost $25) through which I determine whether or not I will partner with a client one-on-one.

Bright Thunder Lightning Strike a one-day virtual or multi-day in-person individual intensive for community accountable scholars ready to end their isolation and take tangible steps to ground their work in the communities they love.  Details here.

Semester that Changed Your Life Coaching Modules:

1. “Doing What I Came to Do”: Activating Your Purpose*

“I am who I am doing what I came to do.”-Audre Lorde

This is the first and most crucial coaching module in the Brilliance Remastered curriculum.  In this coaching process also known as the “purpose-keeper,” I will facilitate and support you in remembering/crafting and supporting an intentional, generative, empowering and energizing greater purpose for your degree work.   This process will give you a touchstone for every step of your degree work giving you consistent access to the superpower of PURPOSE which will provide energy and perspective when the going gets tough.  More info here.

2. Community is Not a Luxury: Necessary Praxis for Degree Survival*

“Look how you print yourself on my heart.” -Audre Lorde

This intermediate stage of the coaching curriculum trains you to implement and build a community of accountability outside of the limits of your university setting.  Community accountability is what distinguishes meaningful intellectual labor from elitist word games.  This coaching module is for scholars who are committed to making a difference in the lives of the communities that inspire them and also activates community as a superpower to sustain your wholeness and to support and celebrate you in your degree process.  More info here.

3. “My Words Will Be There”:  Eternal Strategies for Sustainable Community Accountable Scholarship

This advanced stage of the coaching curriculum is exclusively for graduates of the Doing What I Came to Do and Community is Not a Luxury coaching curricula or scholars who have defended their dissertations or already have PhD’s and are at a transition point in their careers.  This coaching process will provide you with the tools to build a sustainable ecology for your own scholarship that does not depend on the economy of the university.  This is a crucial tool-set for scholars who want their work to live in community organizing, to be interdependent with educational institutions, or to create their own educational/activist institutions.  More info here.


PhDoula:  Push Out that Dissertation with my Love and Support

A doula is a person who assists and supports someone while they are giving birth so that they can have their ideal birth experience and focus on creating a beautiful relationship with that which they have brought to life!  Wouldn’t it be great to have someone on your team accountable SPECIFICALLY TO YOU (not caught up in the desires of the department etc) to have your back as you push out this piece of original knowledge and move on into the world that your ideas will make possible!?  That’s me!

Here are the elements of the PhDoula program:

*The Belly Blessing: Specialized Manuscript/Dissertation/Thesis/Personal Statement/Syllabus Feedback

If you are applying to a PhD or Master’s program because you want to honor the brilliance of currently oppressed communities, because you want to transform the world in the service of a powerful vision, because you love your community and want to make the world better for all us…then I would love to provide you feedback on your personal statement.

If your dissertation, writing sample, personal statement, thesis research or syllabus is related to Black women, motherhood, Caribbean women’s literature, diaspora, activist publishing, print culture, activism, queer theory or any related topic, I would love to read your dissertation proposal, a chapter of the dissertation or (in some cases) the whole dissertation to give specialized feedback.
