Todd hails from the booming metropolis of Storrs, CT, and barely met the requirements to receive his bachelors degree in Music from Valparaiso University. After exploring several career paths, he returned to grad school at The Ohio State University in Columbus, OH, where he earned a masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and a PhD in Counselor Education.
While completing his doctoral work, Todd co-created a wellness coaching program for students at Ohio State that was recognized with several state and national awards. Upon completion of his degrees, he moved to Corvallis to build a similar program at the second OSU of his career. As a coach, Todd’s goal is to help you connect with your capacities for becoming who you want to be and creating the life you want to be living.
In addition to coaching, he continues to engage in research and consultation on initiatives related to well-being, strengths, and motivation while working toward his ultimate goal of transforming higher education by fostering connections that value students’ hearts and souls as much as their minds.
