Hello, and thank you for visiting my website.  My name is Dr. Kat Malinsky and I have a passion for coaching and love guiding clients through the dissertation process.


As a professionally certified coach I specialize in mentoring dissertation writers to focus their topics, design and align the elements of their proposals, and complete their dissertations. In addition to chairing over 100 dissertation committees during my 14 year tenure at Argosy University I have coached over 50 clients through their dissertation journeys. Over the past 7 years I have mentored clients at numerous institutions including; Argosy University, Capella University, Claremont Graduate University, Concordia University, Grand Canyon University, Nova Southeastern, Pacifica Graduate Institute, The University of San Francisco, University of San Diego, UCLA, Walden University, and Washington State University.

I hold a B.S. in Fine Arts Education from Hofstra University, a M.Ed. in International Administration and ESOL from The College of New Jersey, and an Ed.D. in Curriculum and Instruction from Argosy University, Sarasota.

When I’m not busy coaching candidates through their dissertations you can find me sailing my 19 ft. Flying Scot out at the Clearwater Community Sailing Center on Clearwater Beach, Florida.  Learning to sail on Long Island as a child has led to my lifelong passion for the sea.

I look forward to hearing from you.
