Why did you choose to affiliate with Get Centered?
For the many years I have been a coach I have been focused on serving and treating the whole person. By affiliating with Get Centered I finally have the ability to do that with great confidence. My clients now have access to other service providers with a wealth of experience and focus on a variety of specialties. I can think of no other wellness collaboration that provides this level of flexibility and care. I am especially pleased to affiliate with Get Centered during these times of uncertainty for many clients. The pandemic and social unrest has created new complexities for clients that can be best served by people trained and experienced with those issues.
Why should a client come to see you? What makes you different from other service providers?
The primary value I bring to my clients is my wider range enabling them to develop multiple perspectives on the topics that affect their businesses and their lives. The more perspectives they hold the better decisions they make. Three important skills for an effective coach are experience that provides range, intuition, and curiosity. In my life’s journey, I have consciously developed all three by actively seeking practical knowledge as applied to personal and professional challenges. My experience includes time in the military, over four decades of business experience, the opportunity to own two businesses, and the ability to develop a beginner’s mind by seeing the world through the eyes of those I have mentored. From those wide-ranging exposures to life I have developed intuition that feeds my curiosity and fuels my ability to coach.
What do you do for fun?
Ah fun the pursuit of enjoyment, pleasure, entertainment, and excitement. I love this question as it takes the mind to that place where spontaneity lives. I enjoy my time outdoors as well as that time I spend enjoying food and wine and the simple things that come with the community developed around a table with friends and family. I trained as a chocolatier at the French Pastry School and with European masters. Additionally, I hold an intermediate certificate from the Wine and Spirit Educational Trust. When it’s summer the smoker is going and the wealth of seafood in the area is the main ingredient in bringing together friends and family. Living near the water allows me to spend time kayaking for serenity and sailing competitively for adrenaline. With family in the area, it’s easy to enjoy special times doing the things that provide enjoyment.
