Maximize Your Unique Humanity©
As a professional development coach, I encourage and support exploration and examination, while providing accountability to foster sustainable results. I embrace each person's unique humanity to inspire and empower them to take risks both professionally and personally and unblock barriers in order to achieve their goals and become the best version of themselves.
My approach to clients is with empathy through listening for understanding. Through powerful questioning, I support the exploration of ideas and concepts which are either unknown or as yet unexplored, leading to the potential for improvement. By creating a safe space, I encourage my clients to verbalize their thoughts along their journey to desired results.
As a member of the LGBTQ community, I understand the issues of this population. In particular, the challenges of living as an LGBTQ elder.
With more than 20 years of experience as a successful business and non-profit professional, I have extensive management and leadership experience across a diversity of industries and communities. These include non-profit organization and management, corporate sales, training, and leadership development, building government and foundation relationships, grant management, with experience in the fields of travel and hospitality, art, design, and corporation relations.
As a lifelong learner, I intelligently approach life challenges and problems as opportunities. I enjoy cooking, the arts, and travel because I learn about and experience other cultures and people. I am glad to facilitate connections throughout my networks.

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.

My coaching experience with Jerry was excellent. He helped me to get clear in many aspects related with my career goals and job search. Jerry really knows how to listen and all his suggestions were very accurate. It's really easy working with him and he truly cares about his clients. He went above and beyond whenever I was in need for coaching advice for the frustrating process of job interviewing.

Jerry and I are both coaches. Because of his decades of diverse experiences, he is able to help people from many walks of life. He is committed to success for his clients and his years in nonprofits make him so incredibly passionate about change and impact. I make referrals to Jerry because I know they'll get results and use him again, and again during their career.
