Self actualization takes work. Sometimes it helps to speak with someone about how to make it happen. Life coaching can empower you to bring your dreams into reality through achievable goal-setting and raised self-awareness. As a strategy-minded cognitive scientist in predoctoral training, my life coaching approach is strengthened by experience and research in guided meditation and cognitive neuropsychology. I customize my approach according to each individual client's needs and characteristics in order to provide a personalized service and affirm sense of self. With the right support, you can cross the distance, climb the mountain, and succeed in what ever you put your mind to.

About Haley Shea B.

SUBJECTS Coding, Gaming, & Computer Science with Coach Haley Shea: Learn or improve your skills in a programming language with a fun online instructor of game design & development. Haley Shea can help with Python, C#, Java, HTML, CSS, JavaScript (plus a few other languages by specific request). She especially enjoys teaching basic computer science foundations to kids through block coding on platforms like Scratch and Blockly, where students get to design, animate, and develop their own video games. In addition to creating games, she helps students develop their own websites and apps. Gamers can also meet with Coach Haley for live sessions playing Minecraft & The Sims 4 (plus other games listed under the Gaming subject) where we often get to practice in-game console commands (coding to change what happens in the game). For all these (fully-online) meetings, Coach Haley guides students over screen-share with helpful demonstrations. Other computing skills she teaches include PC Basics, Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneDrive, etc.), Google Suite (Google Drive, Google Docs, Google Sheets, Google Slides, etc.), Zoom basics, Intro Web Design, Intro Graphic Design, and Typing Skills for all ages. Previously, Haley Shea has worked as a Meditation Guide, Life Coach, and English Writing Tutor. By request, she still offers writing tutoring and live guided meditation routines for Relaxation, Stress Relief, Anxiety & Anger Management, Mindful Awareness, and Creative Expression. Life coaching topics include productivity and goal setting, executive functioning skills, planning ahead, identifying personal strengths, and making the most of recurring daily/weekly routines (just to name a few). BACKGROUND Haley Shea graduated from the University of North Georgia with two bachelor’s degrees in English Writing & Publication and Interdisciplinary Studies (Mathematics/Technology, Social Science, and Humanities concentrations), and an associate’s degree in Psychological Science (2020). Previously, she completed an associate’s in Communication, Film & Digital Media Studies (2016). While at UNG, she worked as a Writing Center Peer Consultant, Supplemental Instruction Facilitator, English Department Student Administrative Assistant, Writing Fellow, and Ambassador for the Center for Undergraduate Research & Creative Activities (in addition to programming stimulus displays for EEG experiments in the neuroscience lab). Her major fields of study are supplemented by three minors: Linguistics, Psychology, and Studies of English Language Learning. Combined, this background enables a flexible tutoring approach that can be customized to meet the needs of both additional-language learners and individuals facing cognitive challenges. Haley Shea is currently pursuing graduate-level education in cognitive science, conducting neuroscientific laboratory research in psycholinguistics and brain-computer interface, and training for a career in human-computer interaction. During college, her top subjects were Advanced English Grammar and Linguistics. There, she was known for her passionate leadership of study sessions for sentence-diagramming, which inspired her laboratory research. An active community member, she was Vice President of the English Honor Society chapter and led the UNG Writers Guild for two years, helping students write and gather valuable feedback from one another, enabling them to better proofread and edit their work for future publications. Many of those writers saw their work in print through UNG’s award-winning student literary magazine, for which Haley Shea served as an editor for several years. Other campus engagements included running the community book drive for over two years and founding an all-student improv troupe which went on to perform and compete in tournaments around the state and region. While acting helped her become comfortable on-stage, Haley Shea also greatly benefited from her time as a member of the speech and debate team, placing first in statewide debate and slam poetry competitions over the years. Her favorite topic of both debate and poetry is that of human innovation and interaction with emerging technology, especially in relation to ethical policies on artificial intelligence. Captivated by syntax in both spoken language and computer code, she is fascinated with recent developments in language-based software and hopes to contribute to the field of computational psycholinguistics while earning her PhD. After graduating, Haley Shea knew she wanted to keep supporting other students in developing new skills and achieving their dreams. A scholarship student herself, she always loves any chance to help individuals express their strengths and unique personal histories in ways that will help further their goals. To this end, she continues to mentor applicants for nationally competitive scholarships and other student support opportunities, such as the McNair Scholars Program and Goldwater STEM Scholarship. These two awards made an immense difference toward the funding of her bachelor’s education when she was named an official recipient in 2019, in honor of her interdisciplinary research and commitment to fostering student success on campus.
