The Millenial Academic



I’m Lisa (or Dr. W!). 

I am a proud millennial, professor, and small business owner.  I am a lifelong resident of Connecticut.  I currently live in Little Poland, New Britain, Connecticut with my husband Peter and our puppy Leo.

I have worked in higher education for over the last ten years, 7 of which have been as a faculty member.  I teach a variety of classes in psychology and sociology.  One of my passions is research.  My research areas include immigrant students, first generation college students, Universal Design for Learning, and mentoring.  This research has brought me all over the world to present including Harvard University and the University of Oxford. 

My intention with this blog is to provide the resources needed for personal and professional development.  In this blog you will find my book, link to my podcast, as well as blog posts. 

As you check out the resources on this blog always remember this:

You will do amazing things and achieve your dreams.  I believe in you and I am here to support you on your journey!
