Hi, I’m Geri


It took me a decade of adulthood to realize that my life was work, eat, drink, sleep, and digital escape on repeat. I had what I was told I should want - the six-figure salary as a corporate leader, an active social life, a nice apartment in a major city - but I still felt unfulfilled, stuck, and unhappy. 

I woke up to the possibilities in life on a retreat in Bali, Eat Pray Love style. And from that moment on, I put myself in the driver’s seat of my life and started designing it to be exactly what I wanted. For me, this meant making the decisions and building the habits that expanded me into possibility and better aligned me with my vision for my life and work. 


It also meant it was time to start my own business. Leveraging more than a decade of experience launching and growing startups, leading marketing initiatives at big companies, and building business strategies in boardrooms, I designed my own framework for launching and growing a business, and The Business Firestarter was born.

Now that I've helped hundreds of new, established, and aspiring business owners create FREEDOM and FULFILLMENT, I've expanded my work into helping anyone who wants more out of life to feel free, fulfilled, and happy. Leveraging my training and work with some of the world's leading experts in consciousness expansion, mindset optimization, and embodied expression, I have created a Freedom & Fulfillment Coaching practice that leaves no part of you behind.

As both an entrepreneur and a creator, I also expand my audience into possibility as the host of the Abundantly Curious podcast and with my Signature Talks and workshops.


I can't explain how fulfilling it is to help others create a transformed life of freedom, fulfillment, and happiness.
