PROJECT MANAGEMENT
Thank you to Rabbi Erin Hirsh, Gratz College

Gari is a first class act! When I recently began a new job, one of the first things I did was ask Gari to step in and manage my new program’s launch. She was a consummate professional, jumping in and helping me talk through what I was trying to build until I could articulate it in a clear, concise and nuanced manner. Then, Gari conjured up a great name and helped me design and execute a strong communications strategy that is already bearing fruit.

PERSONAL LIFE COACHING
Thank you to my Coaching Clients:

  • Client 1
    After a session with Gari, I feel that all things are possible. She listens, probes and asks questions that get me thinking.  The homework gets me moving and ready to take action.  She definitely cares.
  • Client 2
    Although I have only been working with Gari for a relatively short time, I have already found our work together to be transformative. Always deeply insightful, Gari challenges me to confront the reasons for my procrastination. She offers specific short term achievable tasks that help me focus my energy and direction toward my larger goals. Gari  listens intently and carefully and encourages me to explore and deepen my understanding of my own journey. I am finally learning to truly engage in the process of changing my own life!
  • Client 3
    Working with Gari has been life-changing!  I possess very eclectic skills and interests, and a “yes,” mentality. I often found myself overwhelmed by opportunities and obligations. She can drill down to the nitty gritty of solving problems, while always keeping the big picture in mind.    As a coach, she acts as a supportive, encouraging and focused friend who holds me accountable to what it takes to achieve my best possible life.  Thank you, Gari
