Were you born and raised in Boston? If not, what brought you here?

I was born and raised in rural North Carolina, where I eventually attended UNC-Chapel Hill. About a decade ago, I packed up and moved with a partner to Boston when he landed a job here. While that young love didn't work out, my love for Boston is strong. I'm so happy I chose to make Boston home!

Tell us more about your job or company and what led you to your career?

I'm a former startup and corporate marketing leader turned Business Launch Coach, Life Alignment Coach and Speaker. Three years ago, my life was eat, sleep, drink, work and digital escape on repeat. It took a strong awakening during a solo backpacking trip in southeast Asia to make me realize I had been passively experiencing my life vs. actively living it. I spent the following years immersing myself in health, wellness, spirituality, growth, and self-improvement and discovered my love for empowering others to awaken to their own potential. Now I help my clients design their lives to in alignment with what brings them joy.

What would your clients say about you and your company?

A few direct quotes from client testimonials that I love are: ``Working with Geri has been nothing but pure magic!`` || ``Geri empowered me to be my biggest advocate for change. The fire has been lit and working with her gives me what I need to keep the blaze going!`` || ``After just one session, I felt like a thick veil had been lifted off my eyes.`` || Seeing the transformation of my clients in real-time is the most rewarding part of what I do.

What is the best advice you’ve ever received?

Do not make decisions from a place of fear.

What is currently your favorite book?

The Courage to Be Disliked by Fumitake Koga & Ichirou Kishimi

What is your secret weapon? An app, a tool, a organization method, anything?! (Can be a personal or professional life tool)

Meditation is essential to my physical and mental health, setting up my day intentionally, and manifesting the life I want.

What is your most recent WIN? How are you slaying it in your career or business?

I have 5 clients launching their own business this month alone! One of these clients has been wanting to start her business for 15 years, and we launched it within a few months.

What advice would you give to your younger self?

Work on your relationship with yourself before anything else.

How do you enjoy your free time?

I love connection, whether it's with a community, nature or myself. Meditation, movement, journaling and reading are daily habits of mine. In non-COVID times, travel and adventure are at the top of my list.

What is something that not many people know about you?

I used to have crippling social anxiety, to the point where even one-on-one conversation was a challenge. Thankfully, now I speak to rooms full of hundreds of people with ease.
