I’m on a mission to champion students’ success in their pursuit of completing college degrees in record time without incurring crippling student loan debt.

At Edlinguist Solutions, my team and I provide dissertation coaching, writing services, and a community of support to minimize the time and money it takes to earn a graduate degree.

My workshops, keynote speeches, and coaching sessions have helped thousands of learners find the motivation to stay on the course and succeed. I design and facilitate engaging learning experiences, including strategic planning, company retreats, team building, discussion moderation, and focus group facilitation.

My work can be found at @edlinguist on social media channels, my blog/Substack The 3-31 (, Reader’s Digest, Fox Business, Speech Technology Magazine, Washington Business Journal, and 10+ podcasts.


I'm passionate about exploring different writing genres (expository, persuasive, narrative, etc.) and using writing as a tool for self-expression for learning, at school and in the workplace.

Best Story

I Survived Cardiac Arrest When My Husband Went To Get A Pizza

Origin Story

My love of language and how they are used to connect, and share experiences and ideas with the world started when I was a kid. I grew up in Southern California, immersed in learning Samoan, Spanish, Farsi, and Armenian. When I was 13, after failing at drawing a basic blueprint, I realized that my dreams of becoming an architect may further away from the reality of what I could accomplish. I complained to my mom, who was a teen when she had me, and she took me to where she would go if she had unanswered questions - the library. In the library, as I was exploring jobs that included reading and writing (my next favorite thing behind cool building structures), the libraries told me about the science of language - linguistics. I grabbed a book on the blueprint of language by Noam Chomsky. It was at this moment that I decided to devote my life’s work to the study of language and understanding how it plays out in the social world. My experience from growing up and being immersed in multiple cultures has given me a unique perspective that I use to help businesses connect with their audiences. Today, I am an applied linguist, Learning Success Strategist, award-winning author of the bestselling nonfiction book "Me Power," and founder of education consultancy, Edlinguist Solutions.
