Nice to Meet You! I’m Dr. Cristie Glasheen, founder of Step Strong Coaching. I am a Certified Academic Success Coach specializing in helping graduate students, like you, reduce stress, overcome setbacks, beat burnout, and improve productivity so they can get unstuck and stay unstuck.

With a Master's degree and Ph.D., and a 10-year research career, I know the stress of academia and the tips and tricks to stress-free productivity. In 2014, I started Step Strong Coaching to give graduate students the support they deserve so they can succeed.

My mission is to give you the personalized support your advisor doesn't so you can finish faster and with less stress.

I started Step Strong Coaching in 2014 when I realized that the support I was providing friends and coworkers obtaining graduate degrees could be valuable to many students.

My Master's degree in Public Health helps me apply principles of behavior change, health, and wellness if you are struggling to improve your work-life balance and avoid (or overcome) burnout.

A decade of work as a mental health epidemiologist has taught me productivity, time management, organization, and project management tricks to help you improve efficiency and productivity.

Altogether, I have a powerful set of skills to help you overcome setbacks and get back on track so you can FINISH your degree!

    Academic Success!

    Cristie’s academic coaching was instrumental in helping me get over the final hurdles of finishing and defending my doctoral dissertation. Cristie is skilled at identifying and helping people like me work through the barriers, both internal and external, that might otherwise get in the way of achieving academic success. Her ability to understand and communicate others’ perspectives of a situation was invaluable to me as I prepared for my dissertation defense. I highly recommend her services to anyone who is looking for an academic coach.

    More Productive than Ever

    Dr. Cristie Glasheen has my highest recommendation as both a Life Coach and a person. She is brilliant, insightful, and professional and yet considerate, patient, and easy to work with. And she is certainly effective; as my life coach, she helped me accomplish in just two weeks personal objectives I had tried unsuccessfully for four months to do alone. I am genuinely happy to recommend Dr. Glasheen to anyone looking for help getting their life on track.
