Jennifer Askey, Ph.D.
I coach in order to help academics and post-academics connect with their innermost motivation and values, discover their purpose, expand their influence, and dream big. We spend at least 35 hours each week working–often 40, 50, or 60–and I think that your career should empower you as a person and encourage you to grow. I want my clients to harness their experiences to maximize their potential. I am working toward ICF (International Coach Federation) certification with the Coach Training Institute.
My academic career has spanned a wide array of jobs, types of institutions, and research contexts. I have worked as an adjunct/sessional instructor, been on the tenure-track and achieved tenure, and worked on temporary full-time contracts. When I moved to Canada to follow my partner’s job, I gave up tenure and started a long process of figuring out what else to do with my education and skills. It took me years to figure out that I should work with a coach to get some distance and clarity on how I wanted to work in the world.
