About Lynette

I’ve been involved in Effective Altruism since 2014; I interned at GiveWell, started the Careers Chair role for Harvard College Effective Altruism, and started an EA Fellowship with Penn Effective Altruism.

After graduating from Harvard University with a degree in psychology, I researched self-control under Angela Duckworth at the University of Pennsylvania.

I’m also trained in Person-Centered Therapy (non-directional, non-judgmental active listening) with the peer counseling group Room 13, and I’m a mentor for the Center for Applied Rationality (CFAR).

I wanted to do more direct work after leaving the Duckworth Lab, and 80,000 Hours suggested I try coaching to help EAs level up. So I used my knowledge of psychology and counseling to start EA Coaching.

About EA Coaching

Many thanks to EA Grants, the EA Meta Fund, and the Long-Term Future Fund for supporting EA Coaching.

I also appreciate the non-financial support I’ve received from many other people and organizations over the years. I’d like to thank everyone who has taken time to give me advice, including Peter McIntyre, Rohin Shah, Dustin Peterson, Sebastian Marshall, and many others.
