Hi, I’m JB co-founder of JB and The Doctor.

I took my first dive into entrepreneurship in college where I started a company from the ground up with my very first business partner.  From there I entered the corporate world where I quickly earned the right to a coveted role as a Regional Vice President of external sales in one of the hottest markets in the U.S., San Francisco.  During my decade plus tenure working for one of the largest Financial Services firms in the world I began my journey towards mastering my time, sales, and confidence.  Individually and as a team member I was responsible for over half a billion, with a B, dollars of sales.  I was trained and grew to be a master presenter, consultative sales partner and a resource for some of the top performing financial advisors in the country.  Throughout my career I have given thousands of presentations, closed million dollars + deals and have helped professionals develop at all different stages in their career, from brand new to seasoned vets.  I’ve been an educator, partner, mentor, colleague and coach to professionals such as accountants, financial advisors, insurance agents, real estate agents, loan officers and entrepreneurs. 

Throughout my journey I’ve learned some universal truths.  Success is all about how we work with other people and not just about subject matter expertise.  Competency is table-stakes and to be evolve to our greatest potential we need competency AND to be highly focused and highly self-aware.  It’s why I’m so confident that we can help you achieve and exceed your goals, find greater fulfillment while you do so and leave a larger, more positive impact on those around you.  We can and will help you identify your blind spots, prioritize where you focus your energy and give you the insight you need to level up in business and life.

Hi, I’m The Doctor, co-founder of JB and The Doctor.
Having to work is a huge part of life. Imagine enjoying your job more, while also being present in your own life, and connecting more with friends and family. Visualize not experiencing burnout, being overwhelmed with stress or having a work-life balance out of whack. Ready to make that your reality? I specialize in assisting professionals in becoming more efficient, learning new tools to excel and achieving a true work-life balance. My strategies are created from a combination of lived experience, proven science and years of studying to become an expert on behavior.

A little about me and my background. I started my career in the hospitality arena. I spent over a decade managing and consulting with top restaurants and clubs. It was there that I really started to learn and understand people’s behaviors. It was also my introduction to how to run a successful business with tight margins and how to balance all the politics involved. It was truly learning through the fire. I wanted to know more! The reasons behind why we do certain things, what makes us tick. Plus, I have always had an interest in helping people. So I went on to earn my doctorate in clinical psychology.

My vast executive and clinical experience, includes my time as the COO of a non-profit organization and the Vice Principal of a school for special needs children. Prior to that, as Director of Training, I helped train and shape the minds of interns and practicum students from multiple local graduate programs. In addition, I was responsible for Program Development and Oversight. Some of those treatment programs included: Traumatic Brain Injury, Developmentally Disabled, Life Enhancement (geriatric), and Pediatric cognitive retraining. I am currently the executive director of a group private practice and co-founder of JB and The Doctor.
