As a professional development coach, I encourage and support exploration and examination, while providing accountability to foster sustainable results. I embrace the opportunity to inspire and empower others 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 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. Recruitment
