Dr. Arvidson, known as Dr. Cody and Dr. C to clients and students, began by helping friends who followed her through the dissertation process. As her friends finished they began sending their friends to her in early 2005. Since 2005, Dr. C has coached over 75 people through successful dissertation defenses. She has edited countless more documents and dissertations and has provided expertise to students in need of methodological and statistical guidance. Dr. C also provides resume and cover letter services to clients transitioning through their careers.
Dr. C's Degree Solutions Group faculty members are the same friends who "made" her go into the business of making sure people who start doctoral programs have a fair chance of finishing those programs because only 30% of all people who become ABD also earn the doctoral degree. They are also those former clients who found a niche in the opportunity to share what they learned with the "next gen" of researchers and doctoral candidates.
Dr. Cody Arvidson is the Founder/CEO of the Degree Solutions Group, dissertation and research guru, editor, & statistician.
