A few years later, we learned that my father had developed heart problems. Long story short, this escalated the need to pursue a long time dream of building a home built partly underground, using used tires with rammed earth for walls, i.e Earthship. (Another story for another day)

The journey of building the house with my dad as we shared his experience, was amazing, PRICELESS! Walking the end of life journey with my dad was another life changing experience.

A few years after Dad died, the call to do something more stirred up again.

Then, I prepared to follow the call to go on pilgrimage on the Camino de Santiago de Compostela. A 500 mile walking pilgrimage from the foot of the Pyrenees mountains in France, through Spain to the remains of St. James the Apostle in Santiago de Compostela, then on to Finisterre, Spain.


Another life altering experience (Another story for another day).

After returning from Spain, I knew there was a purpose for the journey and I set out to discover what that was.

"Geri’s calm and logical method of teaching truly connected and inspired me. 


She has  given me confidence to change my way of thinking and feeling and therefore change my life.  I have hope again!"

With all that's going on in the world and the struggles people are going through, the increase in suicide rates, the violence, etc., I decided to look into what I could do to help. One thing led to another and I became a Certified Life Coach and started coaching people using all the modalities of years of experience working with people.

I am thoroughly enjoying the results people are having through Life Coaching. It's like watching transformation right before our eyes.

The call stirred up again, and all the pieces came together. After several months of pondering, discernment and contemplation, I took a leap of faith, and ventured out to work helping people overcome obstacles, pursue their dreams, live a more fulfilling life, and move from surviving to THRIVING!

Thus, came to be.

There is nothing better than watching people "light up" when they realize that there are answers to their struggles, and that they CAN make changes, and live a more fulfilling and joyful life.

We are all valuable. We all have a purpose. We all have gifts and talents that we can share with each other.


My goal is to help and encourage all who are looking to make positive changes in their lives.

Peace and joy are attainable and they begin within. Let's DO THIS!!
