Many requests to coach and mentor the next generation of women academics over the years inspired me to train professionally as a CTI Co-Active coach in 2018. I coach and apply the principles of connection to my workshops, talks, and consulting. CTI is the largest coaching training in the world and focuses on wholeness, integration, creativity, and resourcefulness. Read coaching testimonials here.
Writer since 1977
I’m committed to getting ideas down to be shared, to connect thoughts and people. I authored numerous chapters, journal articles, edited volumes, and the most exciting projects are underway.
Research Sociologist since 1995
I consider the individual in a broader context. History, culture, the physical and emotional surroundings, other people, social policy, unconscious processes, our psychology, past experiences, wishes and dreams, feelings, hopes, patterns of thought and behavior. It all matters. I use research to integrate the big picture to the individual and back. I recognize how structures in society shape our agency, and how we use our agency to shape structures.
