Hello! My name is  Dr. Sheryl Guse, I am a 2021 doctoral graduate from USC,  wife, and mother of three. 

Completing my doctorate in the midst of a global pandemic, homeschooling and working full-time has taught me a lot about myself and the power of shifting your mindset to get clear about what you want to do. 

After graduation, I had time to reflect on this experience and I have learned so much... I am here to support and inspire you!

I founded Grad School Advisory because I see too many graduate students who are struggling. Graduate school, particularly doctoral programs can be challenging, the admission process is hard to navigate and  it is common to feel overwhelmed, uncertain and stuck.  

I hope that you feel inspired, and encouraged and that you discover strategies that work and help you find success in your journey.
