Gigi is a coach of immense insight. Her compassion and genuine support on my journey has been priceless. Her holistic approach allowed me to freely express where I was and where I wanted to go. Most importantly, I felt heard. Xenia D. Small Business Owner/Consultant
Gigi is a very personable coach. She is very enthusiastic and seems to really care about my progress. She has an organized approach and a talent for listening and mirroring back information. What I found most helpful is that the sessions helped me make myself accountable for what I achieved and what I had yet to achieve. Ayana H. University Professor

Ms. Khonyongwa-Fernandez is highly educated, insightful, and a gifted speaker whose passion for children and families pours through her every spoken word. She has a way of seeing the entire person in a holistic sense, and is able to grasp where their life is headed, unearth the deepest desires and fears they have for their children, and to offer them practical tools so they can be the best parents for their children. She articulates her research, experience and insights clearly so that those listening can easily grasp the concepts and put them into practice. Keira S. Founder and President, Preemie Parent Alliance
My coaching experience with Gigi was positive in every way. I always felt understood and supported, encouraged to explore ideas and feelings in a non-judgemental environment. Gigi’s style instantly put me at ease. Her experiences as a preemie mom facilitated an ease of conversation as I was uncovering raw emotions – she understood where I was coming from. She also helped me through a current situation and gave me support, tools and confidence to handle the situation effectively. I highly recommend Gigi and her coaching style. Lisa M. Preemie Parent

Gigi attended Shareunion and conducted a session entitled Relationship Disconnect and Reconnection for NICU Couples to an audience of approximately 60 people. She was incredible and was the first to receive a standing ovation in the eight years of this gathering. Her sensitive, engaging style enabled audience members to share deeply troubling and difficult aspects of their relationships and themselves, and with Gigi’s help, to identify potential solutions. Liza C. Director, Family Centered Care and Family Engagement, March of Dimes National Office
