Dra. Yvette Martínez-Vu

Grad School Femtoring initially started as a podcast and was founded by Doctora Yvette Martínez-Vu when she discovered there was a strong need for demystifying higher education and teaching practical skills to first-gen BIPOCs. 

GSF offers grad school and productivity coaching and consulting services, talks and workshops, as well as free weekly podcast episodes to support undergraduates, graduate students, and working professionals in reaching their goals.


Interested in Working With Me?

I offer first-gen BIPOC students and professionals with tailored grad school and productivity coaching and consulting programs as well as speaking engagements to foster personal growth and sustainable productivity. 

Our services address challenges that first-gen BIPOCs experience through coaching sessions, workshops, curriculum, and resources that cover values exploration, strengths assessments, time and energy assessments, application essay support, and self and community care.

By equipping first-gen BIPOCs with insider knowledge and personalized tools, we help them to empower themselves to thrive academically and personally.
