Manage episode 362341068 series 2854773
The story we bring to life today is that of Dr. Marvette Lacy, the Founder, and CEO of Qual Scholars, a coaching and membership program that helps higher education professionals and doctoral students finish their dissertations and build consulting businesses. Dr. Lacy received her Ph.D. in college student affairs and administration from the University of Georgia. In this episode, Dr. Lacy tells us about her dissertation and how she decided on the topic, and also shares what initially inspired her to pursue a doctoral degree. We hear about how the scrappiness that she needed for survival growing up in Chicago was helpful in graduate school and she tells us about the culture shock she first experienced stepping into the University of Georgia. Tune in now to hear more about how she came back from academic probation after her first year, navigated fallouts with mentors, and employs the Sistas Circle research methodology in her work today. Enjoy.
