I am Dr. Gail Summerskill, known as Dr S. My career is dedicated to teaching people to start and finish writing--from middle to graduate school, to life long learning. Currently, I teach Communications, Writing, & Personal Branding in a Digital Entrepreneur MBA Program.
My teaching experiences, combined with my PhD from the University of Maryland, MA from Columbia University/Teachers College, BA from Macalester College, and MBA in Digital Entrepreneurship from Strayer University have given me a lifetime of lessons learned to teach you the writing process and growth mindset steps that will make you proud of your writing.
As a writer, I know how hard and rewarding writing, persistence, and grit are. Helping you say, "Ah ha, now I get it" and feel confident sharing writing you are proud to have written keep me a passionate writing teacher. I am glad you are here.
When I am not writing and teaching, I am doing triathlons or RV camping, hiking, and kayaking with my husband and our lab. I also travel regularly to California, Colorado, and New York to visit my 3 children, stepson, daugter-in-law, and 2 grandchildren.
