You may wonder WHY she has chosen to mentor people to go above and beyond what they ever thought possible for themselves as a line of business, well it is because her life hasn’t always been this rosy as it is for her today. Gemma knows first hand what it means to be down, wrecked, have very little self-confidence or self-esteem, and to be made to feel like a discarded matter. Gemma is victorious over the worst form of domestic abuse by her former husbands, she was consistently beaten, put down, insulted, berated, degraded, economically abused for 15 long years. She was even raped.

So, it is easy to see why Gemma is an inspirational leader, a rising star in her field, a woman of promise. She could have easily stayed down and remained in the worst form of domestic abuse, even after leaving domestic violence she could have easily chosen to remain in her small city in Europe in her small but nevertheless successful career as a tax accountant, she could have easily remained there under the distant pressures and violence of her ex-husbands who destroyed her and her reputation as a women and person completely even after she left the abuse for good, she could have easily chosen to remain there and be a mother to her children in a terrible setting for her and them, she could have easily remained where she was even after escaping domestic abuse without ever seeing a vision of a better life for herself, her children, and others.

She could have....but instead she chose to put an end to domestic violence, she chose to take the door and bounce back so much stronger and to go above and beyond and become a true role model and inspiration to follow instead of choosing to put an end to her life in every way. Gemma courageously and heroically held on to her vision moved halfway across the world to California without speaking English well and she built herself up again from the ground, with the help and support of her new husband, to become a true example in courage, leadership, and resilience not only for her children, her community but every woman out there. Indeed instead of staying small and in fear this woman of promise, of courage, chose to rise like a Phoenix from her ashes and be the guiding star for others so that they never again have to be or feel down, wrecked, have very little self-confidence or self-esteem and to be made to feel like discarded matter and be, as well as feel, far less than what they truly are.

It is a powerful message that Gemma is sending to every woman currently living in the worst forms of domestic violence: a woman who was down, wrecked, had very little self-confidence or self-esteem and was made to feel like discarded matter and was coerced be as well as feel far less than what she is for 15 long years and a woman who had to leave her children behind, who found the strength and desire to completely turn her life around to become an Example, a Leader, and a Master, with a strong mission to help and inspire millions of individuals to step into the energy of success!

Together, they have been featured on CBS 2 with their work.

She is also an extraordinary mother to her adult son, who now lives in the US, and a marvelous wife to her disabled husband, or differently-abled like he likes to say, who should have never walked and who should have been mentally challenged as well as dead by the age of  7, a husband with whom she collaborates and runs her mentoring business today.

Further, she also is a very gifted pianist and violinist and an alumnus of IMD business school, as well as a Reiki practitioner. At the heart of everything she does as a woman, a leader, a wife, a mother, a mentor and as a member of her community are LOVE and INTEGRITY.

Through her journey to this point, Gemma has shown extraordinary and exemplary leadership, resilience, courage, strength, and vision. Very much like she has been encouraged to “raise your expectations” Gemma has chosen to raise her expectations for herself and rise by being a North Star, a guiding light for others.

For all these reasons Gemma deserves to be recognized as a Leader, a Master, an Example, and to show to the world that you can indeed go above and beyond what you ever thought possible and even bounce back from the worst and rise to the top, and yes that you can even be welcomed with open arms by your peers and being recognized by others for your courage, vision and example.

What a powerful message this sends to every girl and woman out there that you can rise out of this and any situation, that in fact, no situation defines you, and that maybe you too will be one day recognized and acknowledged with an award.
