The world needs to hear your voice!
I’ve worked with hundreds of high achievers like you to find personalized writing strategies that help you fall back in love with writing as a form of self-expression.
Rather than a one-size-fits-all process, we draw wisdom from your own unique history and use your core values to make decisions that help you write with more joy and purpose.
My programs and workshops help you develop the practical strategies and unshakable self-confidence to write your book, while also giving you ways to invest fully in other areas of your life.
The work I do with new authors ranges from walking you through the process of writing an attention-grabbing book proposal to helping you create, and commit to, a consistent writing schedule that lets you finish your manuscript without burning out.
Here are the ways I can help you
Group Coaching Program
Before working with Leslie, I was definitely in a toxic relationship with academia and my writing productivity. I have been able to heal my relationship to academia and my writing, and I feel more in control and empowered to exist in academia as a whole person, while letting go of perfectionism and unrealistic expectations of myself.”

WHO AM I?
I’m a certified life coach and former tenured professor of Sociology who spent the past two decades in academia. Unlike a lot of other writing coaches, I’m also a researcher—a feminist ethnographer who has published two sole-authored books with university presses.
My coaching brings together an intimate understanding of writing, scholarly publishing, and the pressures (as well as pleasures) of academic life.
Now, even though I have all the necessary qualifications, what REALLY matters is that I’ve been exactly where you are now, and I can help you find your way with ease and grace.
