May 23, 2023 – 7-8:30 pm – Kirkwood Community Center Rm. 302

Meet Jeremy.

When I was in your shoes, I would have loved to have a coach on my side helping me navigate the uncertain future I was staring into and being plugged into a community of other teens just like me who wanted to live their best lives. Now, as a dad of two teenagers, I'm happy to offer a place for you to discover your greatness while belonging to a connected community.

As a former middle school teacher and youth pastor as well as a current club soccer coach, I've been staying in touch with what teenagers want and need in order to succeed. As a certified Life & Leadership Coach that's helped hundreds of clients maximize their potential and a Relationship Expert that's helped many couples and families create loving and supportive homes, I've been uniquely positioned to guide you using time-tested personal development principles along with cutting-edge psychological strategies.

If you want to know more about my journey, you can read my book Your Best Is Next. In it, I share how I broke free from the expectations placed on me as a teenager to become the person I really wanted to be.

I know what it feels like to be completely overwhelmed by the circumstances life has handed you while trying desperately to pursue a better life. To feel stuck in a moment that you don’t know how to change and stressed because nothing seems clear.

I created this group to help you create a fulfilling future and teach you how to turn any adversity you may be facing into your advantage.

I would love the opportunity to serve as your coach!
