Empowering Emotional Strength
It's time to put action to our words. It's time we actually start to doing the things that will help address the challenges we face, when it comes to mental health in society today. And it all begins with our Youth! In today's episode I get to sit down with Dr. Sarah-Jean. SarahJean "SJ" grew ups in rural Colorado. After graduating high school, she worked in the corporate industry for five years. In 2003, when her daughter, Bailee, was two years of age, SJ chose to attend college as a non-traditional student. In 2008, SJ graduated with her Bachelor of Arts degree, with a major in sociology and a minor in women's studies. In 2009, she completed a Master of Arts in Education Leadership. SJ became Dr. Wyscaver in 2014, finishing her Ph.D., with distinction, in the Higher Education Student Affairs Leadership program, at the University of Northern Colorado. Dr. Wyscaver also earned a doctoral minor in statistical research methods, specializing in qualitative research design. When asked about her most impactful achievement during her academic tenure, she said "Earning a Ph.D. as a first-generation college student while being a single parent was the hardest and most rewarding experience I have ever had. I grew up poor and had no idea what I was doing, but because of my mentors and the people who believed in me, Bailee and I made it." Dr. Wyscaver-Fiedler has practiced, taught, coached and consulted on leadership for over 15 years. And while her experiences as an executive leader are fundamental to her coaching and consulting practice, her values of authenticity, belonging, courage and integrity guide her work with clients.
