About Me

My mother said that growing up, I loved turning anything into a microphone or a calculator. Today, I am an authenticity coach who enjoys meeting and talking to people in transparent ways and being an advocate for anything related to science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM). I’m also a professor, a Presidential Awardee, entrepreneur, comedienne, and leader. The combination might seem complex and unusual, but most pioneers are!

"Dr. Cox possesses a unique quality of care, professionalism and realness you would desire in a career coach. She encourages you to embrace your authentic self while teaching you the necessary skill sets for navigating academia. As a junior faculty member of color, I found this to be helpful for crafting a plan tailored to me. This allowed me to hone in on my strengths, step outside of my comfort zone, and transition to the learning zone. The skills and lessons that Dr. Cox has imparted on me have been proven to be very effective; the benefits of her lessons continue to bear fruit to this day."
