Dr. Ivy Ge is a pharmacy professor, author, and speaker who helps universities and colleges to connect with students’ needs and provide solutions for improved retention outcomes on a budget.
She holds degrees in business, engineering, and pharmacy. Her diverse academic background enables her to connect with students in both liberal arts and science majors, pinpoint and address the emotional triggers that keep students from engaging in academic and social life on campus.
She helps institutions identify high-risk students by screening incoming first-years and design student services around these students to achieve a highly effective retention-based program.
She has made a series of successful career transitions—from airlines to pharmacy to becoming an award-winning author. Her book, The Art of Good Enough, received the 2020 Reader’s Favorite International Book Award, Silver Medal. She teaches students the step-by-step process of building coveted soft skills to stay versatile in today’s competitive job market.
As a horse accident survivor with a spinal cord injury that could have left her paralyzed, she explores self-healing methods in emotional, spiritual, and physical realms and restores her body when no medical treatment can relieve her pain and suffering. She is currently working on a book about self-healing and shares her learnings on using adversities as a catalyst for positive change.
