Hello and welcome!

My name is Jeramy Colvin, PsyD. For the past 20 years, I have worked predominantly as an entrepreneur in the business world; mostly as a training and business consultant. My diverse background in both psychology and business, allows me to have a keen insight into personal growth and effectiveness, and I have built a career helping others to find success. I am truly passionate about helping others, and my goal is to help you to find success as well.

As a professional coach, trainer, and speaker, I have had the opportunity to work with thousands of students to understand sometimes complex subject matter. I do this by connecting with the audience and sometimes provide real-life examples to psychological phenomena. As a University Professor and psychologist, I am able to do the same thereby helping students and clients to gain a grasp of the information and help them to do better in school, career, and life.

My courses are fun and engaging, and I work hard to simplify materials and help students to apply the information to their particular needs. I am your partner in success.
