About Dr. Johanna

Hello, I am so glad that you would like to learn more about me! I am Dr. Johanna Andrews Adlam, the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Premexcellence. I have a Ph.D. in Public Health with a concentration in Social and Behavioral Health from the School of Public Health at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV). I also completed my postdoctoral training in the Center for Health Disparities Research at UNLV. Additionally, I obtained a Master of Public Health degree as well as a Bachelor of Science in Biology from Hofstra University in New York. I also hold academic certifications in the areas of Research, Mentorship, and Communication from the Graduate College at UNLV. 


Recently, I embarked on an exciting new journey to become a certified Coach! I received my training as a Professional  Co-Active Coach from the Co-Active Training Institute. As a Career and Life Coach, I help people gain clarity to design a meaningful and rewarding path aligned with their purpose and values. As a result of this new awareness, they are empowered to take creative action to experience happiness and fulfillment in their careers or lives! I cherish the powerful and transformative coaching relationship that I build with my clients. The safe and trusting space I intentionally create allows them to be vulnerable, discover their inner wisdom and purpose, and unlock their potential to experience career fulfillment and overall happiness in their life.


I also posses a profound passion for working with students at every level of their college careers. I have mentored, advised, and/or coached students through their research projects and coursework for more than a decade. I also teach Public Health and Health Disparities courses at Hofstra University and UNLV, where I have developed enduring relationships with students. My desire to connect with students beyond their research or studies and understand their multiple responsibilities outside of school has helped them succeed and explore abundant possibilities. The unique needs of students are vital to me, and I work diligently to provide tailored services to build their skills and academic performance. In addition to academic support, I also offer emotional and motivational support as well. My compassionate and empathetic approach to academic consulting distinguishes my customizable services.

Additionally, I have collaborated on various public health research projects and programs with researchers and personnel from numerous institutions and organizations. I have over twelve years of experience conducting interdisciplinary research studies and leading diverse research teams at the academic and health system level. I enjoy providing extensive and comprehensive consulting services for varying public health research projects and programs. As a Social and Behavioral Health Researcher, my work focuses on racial and ethnic health disparities, food insecurity, healthy food access for communities of color, and stress and coping processes for persons of color in the United States. 


All of my enriching and transformative experiences have inspired me to create Premexcellence to support other professionals, students, and organizations/institutions through my unique coaching style and individualized consulting services. My sincere desire is for every client to achieve their vision of  excellence on their professional and academic journeys!
