Jomar Reschreiter, ACC, CPC, ELI-MP, Cor.e dynamic specialist - founder of The Reset, executive, and transition coach.
Prior to coaching, Jomar spent nine years working in advocacy, funding, and program development for 3 NGO’s (The International Rescue Committee, PEO, and Mothers Grace). After graduating from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst with a BS in Hotel Management and BA in Dance, Jomar moved to work in hospitality for 10 years all over the U.S. and China.
All these varied experiences have given way to a keen understanding of the importance of managing transitions in an ever-evolving world. This along with a sense of humor and out-of-the-box thinking are the basis for her coaching work.
Jomar and her family that includes her husband, 3 sons, 3 dogs, 1 cat, and a chinchilla currently reside in Scottsdale, AZ. She is an avid traveler who loves a good challenge; when not wandering the world and coaching, you can find her breaking all the rules at bread baking, hiking, working on “new ideas” and finding good sunset spots.
Finding a way back to our truest selves is never easy but I’d like to tell you a little bit about my personal journey to the Reset.
Born and raised in Puerto Rico, I dreamed of being a ballerina, a hotel owner, a chef, a photojournalist for LIFE magazine, a wanderer, traveler and eternal searcher of experiences and ideas. After graduating college I landed the “dream adult job” (the one that included a 401k and healthcare), that great badge that said “welcome to adulthood”.
Soon after, I met and married my husband and within a year, life went from one checked box to another. By 2009, in a span of 11 years, adulting included 3 children and 8 moves around the world. Each move was a start over, a 'reset' of sorts and each included more actual boxes, and even more kids and pets.
By the time I reached Arizona in 2009, life could not be more full, busy and demanding. To combat the crazy demands and my burning need to explore, we designated the summer as our serious Reset time. It was the time where we no longer followed the usual schedule. Schooling would take a whole new meaning and it did not follow a single summer worksheet and rules were bent and broken in many ways. That is how we managed to stave off burnout.
This was the basis for what has been part of my journey to Reset. It started as a little family experiment and just meant for us to connect with each other.
My pretty bio reads like this
Ballet was life until the age of twenty-two at which point, I moved to working in the hotel industry. This gave me the chance to move and work around the world and create a family. We moved seven times in 10 years and now along with our three boys, we reside in Arizona.
I have been an entrepreneur, inventor, school teacher in China, business owner. Before I found coaching, I was focused on the non-profit sector joining with local organizations like Mothers Grace, a non-profit organization that provides immediate assistance to mothers facing hardship; PEO, a philanthropic educational organization that provides scholarships for women internationally and International Rescue Committee (IRC) at the height of the mass migration where I focused on advocacy and funding while educating and highlighting the refugee crisis affecting the world.
Working in advocacy and assisting in empowering families resettling with dignity is at the forefront of the work I believe in doing. I received the World Changer Award by the IRC.
The raw deal
The reality is that I was all that and still I was unhappy, unfulfilled and stuck in patterns that did not serve me or my family. This is how complicated life is specially when optically “you have it all”. To be authentic, I had to stop pretending I was loving my life. I had to acknowledge fullness does not translate into fulfillment and waiting for things to get better never actually works.
I had to be deliberate, unplug and hit Reset.
This was the beginning of what I can now say with certainty is my life’s purpose and passion. The question was, how to engage fully with all my broken pieces and create a beautiful mosaic. How to combine travel, adventure with growth and development? After working for a few years with clients (executives, parents, entrepreneurs) dealing with life’s transitions, the theme of Resetting became even more clear.
In a serendipitous turn of events, I met Sophie. Aside from the love of bread, wine, travel and adventure, the real deal was in our share vision for a company that would encompass our vision of living life authentically and to the fullest. In the midst of developing that vision, Covid hit, the world was turned upside down and Resetting felt imperative.
The power in our partnership comes from our extremely diverse background and experiences in life. It allows us to create from a limitless space, unburdened from the sometimes myopic focus that can occur from only having one specific experience.
Fantastic life coach,
would recommend to anyone
Jomar is a fantastic high energetic reliable creative & well rounded life coach. Her nice & gentle style and support has helped me tremendously. I would not have believed so much positive change was possible before I started my sessions. Jomar has helped with everything from finding solutions for my outlook in life, my attitude, my relationship to my spouse & kids and finding out what I really enjoy doing and being honest to myself. The work around values was really useful not just for the big decisions, but as a way of ‘sense checking’ in every day life!I can’t recommend her highly enough.Would recommend to anyone looking for some guidance and clarification.
