We have known Jill Kersh for five years and during that time we have found her to be truly talented in her work as a life coach. We have conducted joint presentations with a focus on women who manage the family finances as well as women going through a transition. We have referred Jill to our colleagues, clients and friends when appropriate, many of whom have expressed their appreciation of the referral to us.
We believe Jill has tremendous passion for her work and is dedicated to her clients. She has a strong desire to empower women, and her personal and work experiences have given her insight which she expresses with such ease. Jill has the ability to connect with people and embraces challenges without hesitation. In particular, we have seen Jill help women going through a transition, such as a death, divorce, personal challenge or career change.
Dealing with life changes such as these can be very difficult, and in our experience Jill is committed to helping her clients find balance, strength and motivation to fulfill their life goals. Jill is someone who we feel confident to refer to. We believe she will give her best effort to help in any way she can. We don't just consider Jill a life coach, but a life friend.
The recommendation above is based on the personal opinions of Lisa Taranto Schiffer and Christopher J. Wynne and not a reflection of the views of Morgan Stanley or its affiliated companies.
Jill is the finest life coach I have engaged. She is multi-faceted, and bridges the gap between coaching, consulting and mentoring. Her brilliance lies in her life experience, her coaching expertise and her creative, unique intuition and insight into virtually every scenario with which she is presented. I especially am intrigued by her ability to present new perspectives that stretch me to consider new options and new attitudes - and obtain great results. She is not only intelligent, but she has an undeniable gift and a heart-centered drive to help her clients. She has impeccable character and integrity, and I will continue to work with her. She is an amazing life and business coach.
I have been associated with Jill for the past 3 years. We have worked closely together in the past year as co-team moms for the Varsity Cheerlions. She is a pleasure to work with and a women of her word. I would like to especially recommend Jill's work as a life coach. She has helped me to focus on what I want to achieve. She always asks thought provoking questions to help me uncover my true hearts desire for my life plan. She is truly interested in me personally and is not judgmental at all. I would highly recommend Jill as a coach if you want to grow into your own best potential! Live and Thrive!
If you would have asked me a couple of years ago if I ever thought I would work with a life coach, I would have said no! I was so wrong.. For a little over a year I have been fortunate to work with Jill. She is amazing. After my husbands sudden death I found myself in a situation I never dreamed of. I was a stay at home mom, I had to find a job. My home was foreclosed on, my car was repossessed, I was desperate. I found a job, sold my wedding ring to buy a car, but I was broken. Then Jill came into my life, she didn't fix me, she taught me how to fix myself! She is a gift from God, she helped me see I was strong. Jill didn't judge me, she didn't feel sorry for me, she helped me in so many ways. I started to believe in myself. It's been three years since my husband died, I have a good job, with benefits. In April I bought a new fiat. I'm happy. Yes it's hard everyday, with Jill's encouragement I make the best out of everyday. So maybe your situation is not the same as mine. If your thinking about what a life coach can do for you? All I can say, Jill taught me more about myself in an hour than I had learned in 50 years. I consider myself a work in progress, with Jill's help I can't wait to see what happens next.
On December 9, 2011 my husband, Bennett, died suddenly at my feet in our home. Bennett and I lived alone. It was a second marriage for both of us and my children are grown and live nearby. How can I describe Bennett except to say he was my best friend, my soul mate and the answer to my prayers. To lose him so suddenly was a shock and the most unfair thing that has ever happened to me in my life. My son in searching to find someone to help his mother's desperate grief was told by a friend about Jill Kersh who is a support coach. Not knowing what that was Jim called and spoke to Jill and he was so impressed that he told me about her and begged me to talk with her. I must admit I balked about talking with a total stranger about Bennett, how much I missed him and my struggle to go on.
But I called and my life changed. Jill is one of the most sensitive people I have ever met, but more than that her intuition about people is almost uncanny. What has been a year long struggle for me has only had easy moments because of my family and because of Jill. There isn't time to tell all of her gifts. But she has become a dear and special friend whose wisdom amazes me, her sharp analysis of the situation is spot on, but the most important thing is her gift to make you feel like you are her only client, but not even a client, but her very best friend. I know I am not the only client in Jill's life but she makes me feel that way. She never seems to forget a thing about me as if she'd known me for years, and I can truly say my life would not be nearly as happy as it is without her. I still cry when I talk about Bennett but Jill makes me feel like she knew him and loved him as I did.
Jill Kersh is an amazing gifted woman whom I feel blessed to call my friend. She is a bright light in what has been a very dark year, but I know that she is there for me, day or night whenever I need her. That's very hard to find in a professional. But that's not what she is to me. Certainly she is very professional, but she has become a rock for me that goes way beyond her job.God truly sent me a white light when he brought Jill into my life. I couldn't have made it through this year without her.
We had Jill speak at an All Hands' company-wide meeting about her experience working with HA&W. She defines energy and enthusiasm. Her dynamism was very engaging and she gave great examples that were good takeaways for our staff. I highly recommend her!
I would like to take this opportunity to express the delight I have experienced working with Jill as my coach. She has been wonderful and thorough as a mentor during my certification through CTI Life Coaching. She has gone above and beyond my expectations with her valuable information and suggestions and also with her time. She has been responsible for reducing much of the stress I would have experienced during certification.
I have also had Jill do some coaching with me. She proved herself from the beginning, which is why I hired her to be my certification coach. She is enthusiastic, encouraging, creative, while holding me to my agenda and still addressing my saboteurs. I appreciate all she has helped me with. I am lucky to have her as a model while I go through certification.
Recognizing passion, achieving maximum potential, and reaping abundant fulfillment in all areas of life are the focus of Jill Kersh in her co-active life coaching. Jill has the ability to truly not just listen, but to process, analyze, and unleash the desires of your heart, mind, body, and soul. Among Jill's numerous admirable character traits, it is her level of integrity, honesty, and persistence for excellence in all endeavors that are the beacons that drew me to her professionally. I have seen Jill's passion for motherhood and empowering women (happily married, single, divorced, cancer survivors, and those seeking ultimate health and fitness) evidenced through her own children, her friends, and professionally with myself and clients I have recommended to her. Jill's adult children (18, 21, 24) are confident and focused and believe in their ability to follow their dreams... they are limitless in their belief of their ability to achieve and are realizing their potential via amazing successes in high school, college, and careers. I have recommended Jill to friends of all ages that may be seeking to unlock their life passions whether it is academically, professionally, or personally. Jill has an innate ability to converse, connect, and confront with questions that lead to unlocking an abundance of positive energy that empowers the heart, mind, body, and soul to success as personally defined by each client. Jill is following a natural gift which is why she conveys a contagious spirit of positive empowerment. She embraces the opportunity to unlock the passion within each client and celebrates their realization of their achievements with them. Jill is confident, intelligent, and engaging, while also being a dedicated philanthropist that will take your life from simply surviving to vibrantly thriving!!!!
As someone who is fairly new to coaching, Jill has been a godsend to work with. She has cheer-led my efforts to capitalize on my strengths and passions and clarify my vision for my coaching business. She helps me brainstorm new ideas and set goals each time we speak. Because of Jill's support, I continue to make progress toward my dream of setting up my ideal practice.
Jill is extremely adept at holding my big agenda, while simultaneously prodding me to deepen my awareness and forward my actions. I always feel Jill has my back, which is comforting. And because she is also holding me accountable to my goals, she keeps me motivated. If you are someone who is in the midst of change, or is considering making a big change in one or more areas of your life, you'll want Jill in your court!
In the time that Jill has worked with me, she has made unmistakable changes in my life. Her true compassion shines through as she actually cares about helping you get through life's difficulties, and being in the reality TV spotlight, a lot of things can "get in the way" of my goals. She is a joy to talk to and be around and I look forward to every time that we get to spend time together. It is truly a breath of fresh air, and whenever I leave her, I feel relaxed, refreshed, and ready to take on anything life throws at me! But not only that, she makes herself available around the clock, so if something comes up, she can talk you through ANYTHING! I stand by Jill and give Thrive Unlimited my full recommendation.
Jill motivates, encourages, challenges and leads by example. These are some qualities that come to mind when I think of Jill. She has an amazing way of thinking outside the box. Her genuine altruistic persona is apparent in your first meeting with her. There are many coaches out there but I chose Jill because of her genuine devotion to clients; her priority to have clients succeed in all aspects of their life. She excels in an industry where most coaches don't stand out. I highly recommend choosing Jill as your life Coach.
Jill Kersh came into my life at a time when I needed to begin a new phase and didn't know where to start. With her help, we began by finding a new fitness regimen that worked for me. She supported me and kept me from giving up too soon with the result that I lost 25 pounds which I have kept off for almost a year now and greatly improved my overall appearance and general health. Then together we have worked on leveraging that success to make improvements in other areas of my life. Jill teaches me the life lessons I need to improve my own life but is always there with help and support when I need it. I still have a long way to go but, thanks to Jill, I see hope of setting goals that are right for me and working toward a rewarding and satisfying life.
I worked with Jill throughout my Co-Active certification process. Jill has a lot of skill as a coach, but the thing that struck me the most was her gift for helping me find my well of enthusiastic motivation. Even in sessions where we sat in some deeply stuck or hurt places, I always left feeling energized and empowered. That is the mark of a truly skilled coach. She really believed in me, and so I found it easy to believe in myself!
Jill and I met through one of my colleagues. She was kind enough to grace us with her presence by being one of four panelist at my firm's first Women's Panel Discussion of female business owners in Atlanta. Since then, I have worked with Jill on other projects and she is such a delight. Jill is a true motivator and an inspiration to young female professionals, such as myself, to THRIVE in the workplace and in personal endeavors, as well. Even more so, it is obvious that Jill takes a real interest in her clients' talents, activities, wants and needs. She really cares. I would recommend Jill to anyone who is looking for career coaching and creative workshops.
After serving on a panel with Jill for HA&W, and including her as a breakout expert at our recent LittlePINKBook event for women business owners, I can confirm that she does an outstanding job motivating the crowd and creating life lessons for individuals in different size groups. We had lots of positive comments and would not hesitate to include her again!
Jill will celebrate victories with you and she will help you overcome the obstacles that we put in our own path! Not only does Jill possess the education and training to be a "true" coach, she also has the heart for it! She gently probes and asks the type of questions that make you evaluate your choices. What truly sets Jill apart is that she genuinely cares for people - she derives pure joy in seeing others reach their potential! I wholeheartedly recommend Jill to anyone that is going through any type of life transition.
Jill's coaching and the way she draws a person out was invaluable to me recently as I was making a career decision. She helped me to evaluate what I truly wanted and what would give my life maximum fulfillment. Once the choice was made everyone in my life agreed it was the right one for me.
It is my pleasure to recommend Jill Kersh as a Certified Life Coach. Not only have I recommended her to some of my dearest friends; she also has helped me as I have worked through life transitions. Jill utilizes her degree in psychology from Emory University and her natural ability to help others as she works to assist with life changing decisions such as career changes, retirement, marriage, divorce, death, parenting, and many other life transitions.
The day I committed to join the Revive Women's Retreat with Life Coach Jill Kersh and many wonderful women, will forever be the turning point that began the next phase of my life transformation. Although I was very grateful for the life I was living, I was not aware of the tunnel of everyday challenges I had been lingering through. Jill helped me become "consciously aware" of my decisions, my thoughts and my future direction. She has helped me work through what it is I want and set me along a path with strong clarity of the person and life I desire. Jill has a very caring and calming nature. The strong trust she inspired during our Retreat and now as I continue this journey with her support, has enabled me to share, to think, to grow and to make decisions with a very clear purpose. I highly recommend Jill to anyone who desires the support and coaching to bring forth your own personal greatness.
