BREAKING THROUGH BARRIERS
I approach clients with empathy, listening to them to gain understanding, and asking incisive questions. I support the exploration of ideas and concepts, which are either known or as yet unexplored, leading to the potential for discovery and development. By creating a safe space, I encourage my clients to verbalize their thoughts along their journey to desired results.

Helping You Move Forward
I work with clients to break through the obstacles that seem to be holding them back in life. I embrace each person's unique humanity, inspiring and empowering them to take professional and personal risks to maximize their potential and unblock barriers in order to achieve their goals and become the best version of themselves.
Life's too short to be unhappy, unsure, or unfulfilled. I am here to work with clients move toward a more positive outlook on life, providing the tools for them to identify and achieve their goals.

Jerry worked with me as a coach when I was in the process of starting up a new business unit at a distant location in the midst of Covid. Jerry was a terrific sounding board to bounce ideas off of in the areas of recruitment, onboarding of new people, and channeling them towards a common vision – all of which had to be executed remotely. Jerry’s pleasant and non-judgmental nature allowed for our sessions to be focused and productive. Recruitment success and team performance stand testimony to that. The experience led up to a white paper on “Effective remote recruitment, onboarding and integrating of new team members during Covid” aimed at helping business leaders in continuing to focus on building effective and outstanding teams.
