Getting Uncomfortable

Dr. G has some professional credits. They're at the end cuz that's the boring stuff.  Here's what you, the pep-er (pepper? pepuper?) and your pep-ee really care about.

  1. Dr. G is an actual doctor. So she can say hard stuff and serious stuff (and even ridiculous stuff) in ways that people can actually hear. She's spent 21 years talking people into behavior change they'd rather not do, helping them find a way forward when everything seems hard or hopeless, and celebrating with them when life is great. 

  2. Dr. G is an actual mom. Which means she has 19 years (or 64 kid-years if you add them all up) of experience cheerleading, guiding and stepping back at just the right moment before things get really embarrassing. 

  3. Dr. G is a native English speaker, but is also fluent in Hebrew (in case you want to REALLY confuse your pep-ee) and American Sign Language, she takes "talking with your hands" to that level.

  4. Dr. G spent years at The Second City Improv Theatre. She'd never say it, but she's funny. Like seriously funny. And quick on her feet - especially when there's pizza flying or beer raining down on stage.

  5. Dr. G is on TV a lot in the States. The TODAY Show, Good Morning America, The Rachael Ray Show, The Doctors, Home and Family, even FOX News (though she did not say stuff they liked so that relationship is probably over). Your pep-ee might even see her on TV and think "Whoa! An hour of hair and makeup really DOES make a difference!" 

  6. Dr. G (and this is the big one) was a camp counselor for 14 years. Camp counselors, if ya didn't know, can talk anyone into anything and get them to love it!
