Dr. Rowena Winkler obtained her Ph.D. in Communication from the University of Maryland, College Park in 2013. Her research explored the use of digital media and technology for activism, social justice, and student engagement purposes.
As an award-winning teacher and scholar, Rowena presented at international conferences and mentored hundreds of undergraduate and graduate students. She then made a career pivot from academia to industry, leading communication teams and managing marketing projects.
When a friend casually mentioned that her professional expertise — coupled with her empathic abilities and spiritual guidance — could be used for coaching purposes, Rowena took a mental note and tucked the idea in the back of her mind. After witnessing incessant signs from the universe, including the "collective retreat" of COVID-19 and the birth of her daughter Kerrigan Leigh, she is now fully embracing her multi-faceted gifts and talents as a Cosmic Catalyst Coach and Realignment Strategist, helping women step into their unapologetic authenticity through discovering their soul purpose.
