Dr. Kimberly Shediak
I’m an entrepreneur, professor, and relentless optimist focused on helping you become exactly who you want to be.
I was the kid who didn’t break apart my Rubik’s cube so that I could get all the colors lined up – I was the kid who solved it. And, I’ve not stopped taking on impossible, beat-your-head-against-the-wall challenges since. I want to help you with yours. And, if I can, I will.
Like you, I have a hunger to live a life of passion, productivity, and fulfillment in all areas. I’m a strategist & problem solver that goes below the surface, diagnoses challenges and prescribes no-nonsense, actionable solutions for areas that matter most in our lives.
I help people to find their path, achieve their goals, and maintain a healthy work-life integration, from college and beyond. My background includes 17 years of business leadership roles in private, public and small businesses, as well as over a decade of entrepreneurship. My education includes a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science and Sports Studies from the University of Tampa, MBA in Global Management from Thunderbird School of Global Management, and Doctorate in Organizational Leadership from Pepperdine University.
When I’m not working with clients or teaching college courses, I love to travel the world with my husband, frolic with animals, take naps, and laugh uncontrollably.
