Who Is Dr. G

Meet Dr. S
As a young boy Dr. S enjoyed pasting glue on the soles of shoes at the factory where he worked. He continued on the career path of doing what he loved and has never worked a day in his life. He has directed funded research exceeding $3.2 million dollars across the disciplines of public health, women's health, pediatrics, emergency medicine, and laboratory sciences. He served as co-investigator of a project that received $36,300 dollars to assess the effectiveness of initiating tobacco cessation in the emergency department, and as principal investigator of a project that received more than $9.7 million dollars to serve as a partner with the Polytechnic of Namibia to develop a Biomedical Sciences Program in Windhoek, Namibia, Africa.

Meet Dr. A
Although I am at heart a nerdy nerd, I love my work and it shows. In every job I have had, coworkers love my laugh. One bunch of coworkers called after I had moved and begged for a laugh track they could listen to on a regular basis! But a lot of laughing does not mean I am not serious about my work. I have experience managing large and small datasets in SPSS and teaching newbies not to fear SPSS or cry over syntax errors—like those missing periods. I have experience guiding the design, analysis, and publication of quantitative and qualitative social science studies, including participatory action research and program evaluation projects.
My specialty is building on each learner’s strengths so that they surprise themselves at how much they know. Transformative learning starts with building confidence in your abilities, so that you can creatively apply new skills to each problem you must solve. This type of skill building doesn’t involve rote learning, cramming, or “teaching to pass the test,” but instead involves teaching you to think critically. I am NOT talking about problem solving that may need personal intensive counseling and therapy. I AM talking about solving problems when writing, editing, thinking, researching information, and analyzing data.
Meet Dr. F
I love writing, reading, and research! In fact, even as a young girl, I would play researcher. This included pulling all of the books down from the shelves that were about a certain topic, say wildlife of North America, and studying them for hours. I envisioned myself as a researcher. Once I got older, I realized that research was not enough. Knowing things was great! However, I needed to translate and disseminate information to others. I had to join the conversation, and that means I had to write. Fortunately, I enjoy that part too!
My background is in English and teaching writing, including technical writing. I have worked on the successful development of grants, published papers in peer reviewed journals, and earned a PhD in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis on Reading and Literacy. What does this mean for you? I understand the writing process and how to help you build self-efficacy (feeling like you can be successful at a task) and develop sustainable skills. My formal research training spans both quantitative and qualitative methodologies.
Meet Dr. H
Hi everyone. Well, a little about me. I am a wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, sister and auntie, and loves nothing more than enjoying the outdoors with my family. I and my husband are in the early stages of empty nesting and boy, do I love this new adventure! I spend a lot of time, when not working, teaching, or reviewing study submissions, outside doing whatever strikes my fancy. I live on a little bit of land and have a horse, 16 chickens, anywhere from 2 to 4 dogs depending on if my grand-dogs are visiting, and 2 cats. I have a big garden, several fruit trees (well maybe 7 or 8), lots of berry bushes, and am in planning stages of my husband’s next big project (that I have yet to present him with of course) which is a playground for our 3 grandchildren. See what fun you can have when you become an empty nester!
Now a bit about my professional side. Yes, I do have one. I have approximately 25 years’ experience working in a variety of roles within the criminal justice system, ranging anywhere from working as a correctional officer to engaging in multi-agency state policy implementation and analysis of outcomes, and I am actively engaged in study of current practices and their impact on community safety and offender recidivism. I currently a Business Analyst for a criminal justice agency in the state of Idaho, am an adjunct Professor of Criminal Justice at a local university and am a voting board member of an IRB (yes, they actually let me vote). I am an experienced dissertation mentor and chair.
When we work together, I will guide you, coach you, support you, and challenge you to think critically about your topic. I will remind you that when viewed from a different angle, things may very well look different and that is entirely acceptable. I will ask you the tough questions about your topic, I will note where clarity is needed, and when it is all said and done, you will have a work you can be proud of authoring.
Who Is Dr. P
Dr. P’s career has spanned both the academic and service fields of health care. Along with teaching experience at the undergraduate, graduate and doctoral levels, she has held a variety of educational leadership positions ranging from Department Chair, to Associate Dean for Academic and Student Affairs to Vice President, Operations and Academic Affairs to Campus President. While the variety of roles is important, so is the type of educational settings that she has worked in, ranging from large land-grant public universities, to small regional colleges to private colleges as well as a national for-profit online university, so she is able to offer familiarity regardless of setting and position and help you determine best fit depending on your goals, values and strengths.
She also has extensive administrative experience in a variety of health care settings, focusing on a wide range of management and leadership roles. As the owner of Strategic Light Consulting, she has facilitated numerous projects including college and program development, organizational change assessment and evaluation, strategic planning and prioritization, outcomes systems management, accreditation preparation, change management, leadership assessment. She has written four textbooks and has presented in a wide variety of workshops and seminars, locally, nationally and internationally. If it is professional writing or presenting you are interested in learning more about, or refining to the point you are comfortable speaking in front of 5,000 people, there is a way to excel!
Mentoring, coaching and guiding new and aspiring faculty, people who are thinking of a change to either an academic or service leadership role and for those who are simply “stuck” in a current career trajectory are those exact colleagues to whom she can offer the most guidance. You may only need one or two sessions to bounce some ideas around, or you may want a more frequent “call a friend” when you need someone to listen, without judgment, to your ideas, hopes and dreams.
We remember feeling anxiety helplessness, or even pure horror at the thought of attempting our own first peer-reviewed presentation, publication, or grant submission! Little did we know acceptance is just the first step and the audience can—at times—be brutal.

All team members are subject matter experts in their field with doctorate degrees from accredited universities and have extensive experience mentoring, coaching, and teaching.
We Meet You Halfway
We know that communication and learning styles vary. For this reason, we offer one-on -one coaching via phone calls, virtual meetings, or shared meeting rooms. These online techniques allow both parties to “see” revisions needed. If you prefer not to take advantage of our virtual meetings, that’s ok. We work with you to develop the most effective communication strategy for you.
