About Jessica

Hi. I'm Jessica. I'm glad you've found your way to my webpage. I hope you've found what you're looking for because I'd love to talk with you about how coaching can help you reach your goals.

I am an expert in motivation in academic and work settings. Using insights from the most up-to-date scholarship and extensive practical experience, I can help you get OnTrack by identifying your guiding values and goals, creating a plan, and then sticking with it by meeting your goals daily, weekly, monthly and in the long term.

I earned a Ph.D. in Educational and Psychology and I am an internationally published researcher on the topic of academic motivation. Through my work I explore what motivates people to succeed in academic tasks and what social supports encourage success.

I have lived over half my life in Columbus, OH, and am honored to serve the community.

I'm also a marginally dedicated runner & used-to-be high school swimmer, a suburban chicken owner & natural foods advocate, and was a professor that students teased for my enthusiasm.
