Deadline Looming?

Are You Losing Sleep Over Your
Master's Thesis or Doctoral Dissertation?

The Stories Are Always
The Same...

· You've (re)written your chapters
so many times, it's become
a jumble of words.

· You CAN'T WAIT to get out of Grad
School, but your Thesis Adviser doesn't think your Dissertation
will ever be ready,
or "Good Enough" to submit.

· You're a Year 6, 7, or 8, or 9
Doctoral Candidate.

· Funding Is About to End,
or Has Ended.

· Job's Waiting.

· Wedding's On Hold.

· Spouse and Children Are Upset.

· Parents (Or In-Laws)
Are On Your Case.

Time To Write A Different
Ending To Your Story.

In the U.S., only 56.6% of all doctoral students complete their degree within 10 years... *
     - Council of Graduate Schools
* That's a troubling 4 in 10 attrition rate!

It's Time To Finish.

Every Semester, I Receive
Numerous Editing & Coaching
Requests From Stressed-Out
Doctoral Candidates,
Many Of Them A-B-D's...
(All But Dissertation)
Stuck In The
"Can't Seem To Finish" Track.

Trying To Decide?

If You're Like Many Who
Have Sought My Expertise
Over The Years,

The Hardest Decision You'll Make
Is To Acknowledge
That You Can't Do It Alone.

Let's Get You Unstuck,
And On With Your Life.
