We empower you to live your best life during college and beyond. Each week we share sustainable strategies, expert advice & inspirational stories right to your earbuds. You can up-level your college game in the time it takes you to walk to class.
Collegehood Advice provides high quality, practical advice for any student seeking to get more value and fulfillment from their college experience. You won't find hacks and short cuts here. We are looking to help you establish sustainable habits, practices, and experiences that nurture living your best life everyday.
Each episode answers questions from current college students, shares stories from people who have been there, and provides advice and insight from real experts. Our content is based on practical experience, insights from higher education professionals, and the latest research in learning science, cognitive theory, design thinking, positive psychology, and mindfulness.
Our work seeks to encourage a fun, healthy, and fulfilling approach to college that ditches the old notion that college is about partying, prestigious colleges, and the right major. Instead we embrace the new reality that the value of the collegehood experience is about developing yourself, building a strong network, cultivating transferable skills, and learning from a wide range of meaningful experiences.
I love serving the world by encouraging college students to go for their dreams. I believe a better world starts with more people living their potential and purpose. I am a podcaster, coach, educator, and writer serving college students who need help figuring out their life. I am lucky to empower college students to live the most authentic, meaningful, and rewarding college experience possible by helping them clarify their goals, identify opportunities, and take action.
As a professional academic advisor, college instructor, and podcaster I’ve developed content, workshops, programs, and university-wide initiatives that have helped thousands of students from around the world find success during college. When I’m not busy helping college students create an awesome college experience you can find me tending a garden, hiking a trail, figuring out life on a yoga mat, or cooking my tail off in a kitchen. You can find me in Austin, Texas soaking up the sunshine and eating tacos with my kids, husband, and dearest friends.
