As the College Life Skills Coach, I am here to support students in anything related to their academics and making the most of their time here at UVA. You'll likely hear about workshops that I offer on topics like time management, study strategies etc... I also work with students one-on-one, where I have time to hear their story, goals, dreams, challenges, and frustrations. Examples of topics we could discuss include time management, procrastination, study strategies, habits, transitioning to UVA, goal setting, assertiveness, social support, making connections on grounds, exploring majors or careers, motivation and more. I take a coaching approach where I spend a lot of time listening and asking questions. Together, we will explore your goals/interests/needs, identify barriers that may exist, and brainstorm creative strategies/solutions, as well as additional resources for support. I hope that you will find a meeting with me or a workshop you attend to be encouraging, practical and helpful.
