I am committed to helping individuals and organizations discover, learn, and grow toward your desired future. My life experience has connected me with hundreds in a variety of settings. In all of these interactions I have worked to help people understand and explore these questions:

Who am I? Why am I here? Where do I want to go? How can I get there? Who can help me?

 My promise is to help you become more fully yourself. Through exploration, evaluation, resourcing, understanding, decision making and goal setting I will help you develop and put into action a plan of forward directed life progress.

I have directed programs for schools, a conference center, and varied ministry settings. Additionally, I have fulfilled a variety of roles across the spectrum in public education, including having been an instructor for City University Graduate School of Education and a community parent educator. I have a M.Ed., Adult Education from WWU and a B.S. from Oregon College of Education (Western Oregon University). I, also, have experience writing for numerous settings.

I am married to Connie and we have two adult sons; Kyle and Michael and five grandchildren. My blog of ideas, essays, poetry, micro-fiction and more can be found at https://jimschmotzer.substack.com/
