Nadine’s coaching helped me acknowledge my power and stop giving it away to the harmful and toxic academic-industrial complex. Nadine helped me minimize my reaction to what others think about me by helping me learn to empower myself with what uplifts and nourishes me, to make the worries smaller, and remember why I do what I do. I miss my conversations with Nadine, but her words and what she taught me will forever shape my pedagogy and personal life. It was indeed a life-altering experience. There are not nearly enough people like Nadine who care and are willing to share their unique gift(s).
