Meet Your Host:
Lucia Juarez, PhD. 

Life and Academic Coach

I am a professional Coach following the standards of the ICF (International Coaching Federation).
I have devoted my life to the academic environment, and I have successfully obtained different graduate and postgraduate degrees (Architecture, Master in Heritage Conservation, and PhD in History of Architecture, while actively participating in teaching and other academic jobs which provided me with the personal fulfillment of receiving international recognition for my work as a researcher as I presented my work internationally since I have written several articles in my research field.

The certifications of both 'Life Coaching' and 'Academic Coaching have allowed me to put all my personal and academic experience to help students and researchers to achieve their academic goals not only by having a more productive and successful life, but also a more balanced life.

I have created these Free online mini-trainings to help PhD students who are driven but cannot obtain the results they want, mainly because they are not finding a solution to their restraints.
