This course is fun, with the ultimate goal of supplying you with information and techniques to better understand and support your partner. You will then use that information to set goals culminating in a mutual vision for your relationship. As you use the tools presented in the course, you will get a clearer image of where you and your partner want to be next year, and in years to come, to have the relationship and life you deserve
During his eight-year US Army career, James served in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia; Suwon, Korea; Ft. Stewart, Ga.; and Ft. Bliss, Tx. James went from leading soldiers as a non-commissioned officer, to earn a B.A. in Psychology, a M.A. in Education and supporting military-affiliated students in community college, non-profit, for-profit, and Research 1 institutions. Currently James serves as a board member of the VetCtap non-profit organization.
Relationships, team-building and core skills are James' areas of interest. He has spent the last 15 years in higher education supporting student leaders and non-traditional students. In his personal life, James has championed veteran causes, individuals re-entering the dating scene, and the creation of support programs and training for transplants (individuals living away from family and community).
James and his wife Janka met nine years ago, and have since used
many of the tools offered in this course to learn about, and support each
other. Strongly believing in the benefits of continuously nurturing one’s
relationship, the two went from strangers to partners for life. And it was no
magic or miracle, only conscious effort. James and Janka live with their two
cats, Freddy and T’Challa, in San Diego, California.
