More about Jeff – 

Jeff had worked in the Integrated Pest Management industry for over 38 years. He has been responsible for serving large food manufacturing facilities and individual single-family homes. He was responsible for ensuring large accounts meet many different standards. Jeff enjoyed sharing his knowledge with fellow employees and his customers. He recently retired from this industry to be able to devote more time to EQ.

Jeff believes that each person has at their center something that is “A work of Art”. His greatest pleasure is helping someone find the art that is buried deep within. These opportunities can come from EQ work, his career in Pest Control, his work in spiritual areas such as local mission and prison work, or just someone whom he meets in the street. This belief has helped him define his Noble Goal along these lines.

He has seen in himself and in others how working on Emotional Intelligence can allow people to look inside themselves and see the hidden art that makes them special.
