Jeff was also a co-caregiver for his father for 5 years, during his battle with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis. He is the father of two amazing daughters, Alex and Logan, who live in Norfolk, VA.

He holds a B.S. in Communications from Western Michigan University (Go Broncos!).

He is a Certified Life Coach, a Certified Caregiver Consultant™ and Certified Caregiver Educator™. Jeff recently founded ONE LOVE COACHING and CONSULTING LLC, which works with patients, caregivers, and families, by providing support, coaching, and consulting, to help them develop a customized plan to cope with the stresses, fears and realities associated with Lyme disease and other Chronic Illnesses.

Join Jeff for his presentations at our Fourth Annual National Caregiving Conference:

Session #1


Nothing Is Realistic or Unrealistic--We Create Our Own Reality
Friday 1 p.m.
Description coming soon!

Session #2


Panel Discussion: Friends Make All The Difference In the World
Saturday 10 a.m.
The Beatles got it right. We’ll get by with a little help from our friends.

A 2005 study reported people’s strong friendships had dropped from three to two. A 2006 study stated that 25% of respondents didn’t have anyone they could truly trust.

We all need trustworthy friends. With a professional caregiver shortage upon us, we are going to need our friends more than ever as we journey toward old age.

You will want to attend this session if:

  • Your current friends all but disappear when you need help.

  • You don’t know where and how to find loyal and trusting friends.

  • You want to leave a toxic friendship but don’t know how.


Please join facilitator, Joy Loverde and panelists Sharon Cruse, Sharon Hall, Dannelle LeBlanc, and Jeff Peterson for what promises to be a highly insightful and lively discussion on the critical topic of having, choosing, keeping, and releasing friendships, and the amazing difference friends make in our lives.

Attendees will have a better sense of whether to take action to improve the quality of their friendships.
