STEM careers are in high demand.

Welcome! I’m Lori Ana .
Founder of Radiant Journey, LLC
Chemist, Resilience Coach, Mentor, & ACS Career Consultant
As an analytical chemist, I understand how rewarding yet challenging STEM fields can be. Our work brings tremendous value to the world, and we hold ourselves to high standards. However, this type of pressure can lead us to develop unhealthy and unreasonable expectations for ourselves. Anxiety, limiting beliefs, and perfectionism create the perfect storm for conditions like imposter syndrome.
It’s my mission to offer resilience coaching and resources to STEM students and professionals so that they can be empowered to shine, thrive, and achieve in the beautiful world of science no matter the circumstances.
These programs are designed for scientists by a scientist. I understand the unique challenges you are facing, and I have developed viable ways to address these challenges while maintaining academic and professional performance. I’ve used these methods myself, and so have the countless students and professionals that I have worked with.
A little more about me…
I’m a chemist in Albany, NY where I live with my son Isaac and our cat Arginine - that’s right, I named him after an amino acid :) Many moons ago I was a competitive martial artist, but now I have found strength in stillness through daily meditation and yoga. I learned this practice from my dad (who still does headstands in his 60s), and I’m honored to pass that practice on to my son.
