To whom it may concern:
Kerry King has been my communication (life) coach and friend for the
past ten years. Through my work with him, I have grown tremendously both
personally and professionally. He has given me immeasurable support and
empowered me to become the woman I knew I could be. My work with him has
been amazing, incredibly challenging and also highly rewarding. I am
now embarking on a new phase of my life, with a number of life-long
dreams coming to fruition: acceptance to do graduate work at Yale
University School of Forestry & Environmental Studies, a very exciting
career offer, and, perhaps best of all, a commitment to myself to follow
my bliss and intuition by taking a year "off" to immerse myself in
studies of the natural world.
During my time in Hawaii I operated a nursery business that was a
success. Financially the sale of that business will help enable me
to undertake these next challenges. I also wrote three books. My
relationship with my boyfriend and business partner of the past ten
years has also been exemplary, truly uplifting and enlightening from
start to finish, thanks to Kerry's facilitation and support. My health
and fitness has never been better, yet it has never been more
effortless. When I look at how I got to this place, the myriad levels of
support I have received from Kerry stand out at every turn.
Through my work with Kerry I have developed and strengthened some
fundamental character traits including:
integrity (a key part of my life, and a concept I did not give
much thought to until I met Kerry)
an ongoing commitment to personal growth
a commitment to serving others.
Through my relationship with Kerry I have learned the following
How to speak my truth, however uncomfortable, and share my
experiences with others in a responsible, uplifting way. (My old
pattern was to stay silent or shut down if I felt upset or unhappy,
because I did not know how to communicate these experiences in a way
that released them.)
How to make and keep agreements (which may seem simple, but I had
so much to learn)!
Tracking my problems to their true source, to discover patterns of
behavior that were not working for me. (Problems have become not
something to dread or avoid, but an opportunity to discover something
important about myself).
I had had a number of failed romantic relationships before I met
Kerry. His support in telling the truth, in staying on top of
communication, of tracking any abusive patterns and reinforcing positive
behavior, has given me enormous confidence in any friendship or
partnership I undertake.
I must add that in all these years, Kerry has been there for me at all
hours, even in the middle of the night or at 3:00 am. I remember when I
first met Kerry, I was so thrilled to discover that such a person
Here was someone willing to tell me the truth, to be with me when I
struggled, to be a clear space where I could share my fears in a way
that they disappeared. He also has delighted in getting behind my
whatever they were, without imposing agendas or judgments of his own.
This is a rare quality not often found in friends or family. Even in my
darkest moments, Kerry has been there to validate my experience
and, simply, to be with me. I feel so thrilled and fortunate that I had
the chance to work with him so closely. I regret nothing. Kerry can
truly say, just like the Genie in Aladdin: "You¹ve never had a friend
I strongly recommend working with Kerry as a communication and life
