“Dr. Cleopatra brings a stunning combination of research background, scientific training, academic accomplishments, and communication artistry together – and then offers it with a strength, joy, and gentleness that benefits all those who are around her. Her dedication to helping women and families changes lives – for the better. Anyone who knows Dr. Cleopatra and learns from her is fortunate indeed.”

Deep Sense of Joy in Daily Living
“Dr. Cleopatra is living proof that women can have it all: a family, a satisfying career and a deep sense of joy in daily living. She not only leads by example, but she’s dedicated to showing all of us how we can do this in our own lives, too. If you are a professional woman trying to figure out how you will balance work and family once your baby arrives, make Dr. Cleopatra your first stop.”

Your Insecurities and Issues are Totally Normal
“My nickname for Dr. Cleopatra is The Empowerer. Dr. Cleopatra is perhaps the single most empowering person I’ve ever met. She lifts others up, and helps them be their best selves. She helps you realize that your insecurities and issues are totally normal, and in fact even something to be proud of! In other words, Dr. Cleopatra makes you feel happy to be alive! She brings this joyous ability to her work, and empowers so many clients and families to realize their dreams.”

After supporting and tracking the results of faculty who have successfully advocated for an Institutional Membership, we have developed a clear, concise formula for making a successful "ask" for the Academic Parenthood Program.
