Shannon Wong Lerner, Ph.D., is a queer biracial Asian communication coach who meets you from your unique starting place to better support you as women, BIPOC, WOC, non-native English speakers, people with disabilities, allies, & LGBTQIA+ talent. I use a whole-person, holistic method that considers WHO you are, WHERE you come from, and HOW you sound as a communicator. So you don't sound like a version of someone else. But you sound like a better version of yourself. I value life-work balance to support clients to work toward their authenticity, improved health, and well-being alongside their goals.

My love of culture, creativity, and social issues has led me to help others to grow their personal brands. I enjoy hosting or co-hosting the tutorials and podcasts: Queer Home Meditation, eFEMeral: Voice Matters, and The Intersection: Diverse Folx Converse.
