Here I am again asking myself, “Where did the year go?” I’m trying to prepare for the holidays, but, as organized as I am, they always seem to come too quickly. And, as much as I love being involved with family and community, it doesn’t help that my October calendar is filling up fast.

David’s stepfather is turning 80, so we will be attending a family reunion in Orlando. As ambassadors, we’ll be participating in a number of events for the Palm Beach North Chamber of Commerce. Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, I have been invited to a fundraising luncheon. As a community sponsor with the Town of Jupiter, David and I will have a booth at their Fall Fest. Next up is our nephew’s wedding in Virginia.
Whew! Oh, wait – Let’s not forget Halloween! It’s time to stock up on candy, and some neighborhoods go all out on by decorating their homes and having block parties. No matter how you plan on celebrating, I wish for you cooler weather, no rain, and a safe and fun-filled time for everyone involved! And once the jack-o-lantern goes dark, remember that many more hectic holidays are right around the corner. Be sure to take time for yourself and your family. And as always, thank you for taking the time to invite us into your home.

Doing What’s Right to Safeguard Your Future By Darla Parris Smallwood, with Andrew Goldberg
Doing the right thing. It’s important to Andrew Goldberg – as a devoted father of three, and as a trusted financial advisor at Govic Capital. There’s nothing he’s more proud of, says Andrew, than his three daughters, ages 16, 14 and six. “Sometimes when you’re busy raising kids and working, you forget what fun is, but my little one reminds me every day.” Andrew spends as much time as possible with her, visiting local parks and beaches and simply enjoying activities. However, being in “good dad mode” isn’t all fun and games, especially when you have one child with special needs. So, as much as Andrew cherishes the more lighthearted moments, he tackles the daily responsibilities too, including making time to volunteer at his youngest daughter’s school. It comes as little surprise that in his work, Andrew takes a similar approach, relishing the interaction with his clients, while also working hard to address their individual situations and needs. With a law degree and two insurance designations (Licensed Long Term Care Professional, LTCP; and Life Underwriter Training Council Fellow, LUTCF), plus 18 years’ experience as a financial advisor, Andrew is wellversed in finding just the right investments and financial solutions for each client. “You may already have someone giving you financial advice,” Andrew says. “Maybe it’s a CPA or a tax professional, or maybe just the guy in the cubicle next to you at work. I’ll give you a second opinion, and tell you what’s good about what you have – I’ll never recommend changing something if it’s already good – but I’ll also give you new ideas that might also be right for you. I have a reputation to uphold; I’m always going to do what’s right for you.” Because he is an independent advisor (as opposed to a
captive one), he “wears no specific hat” when it comes to recommending what’s best. “I’m free to offer opportunities that many other advisors, brokers and planners may not even know exist,” Andrew explains. “With me, you get a comprehensive, ethical and honest approach. I’m not looking to ‘sell you’ – I’ll just help you see what the possibilities are.” He even welcomes clients to share his recommendations with their current “people,” says Andrew, because he knows they’ll agree that his advice is sound. “It’s rewarding to be there on those great days to see clients retire or pay for their kids’ college and know that I helped their financial planning pay off,” says Andrew. “But I believe it’s also my responsibility to ensure that their planning pays off on their worst day, so their lives won’t be ruined by circumstance, and they won’t become a burden to their families.” If you’re looking for an experienced, skilled advisor who offers a straightforward, comprehensive approach to preparing you for whatever lies ahead, email Andrew Goldberg at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 561.324.3826.

Celebrate the Season with Town of Jupiter’s
October Fall Fest By Kate Pokorny, Communications & Events Coordinator
Fall in South Florida is filled with family fun, cooler weather and pumpkins. To celebrate the arrival of the season, as well as the return of our seasonal residents, the Town of Jupiter will host its annual Fall Fest on October 7, 2017. The event has something for everyone. For all the little pumpkins, there will be a kids’ carnival featuring bounce houses, a hay ride, an activity map and face painting. For the adults, the event will showcase many local vendors selling all sorts of wares, from boutique clothing to hand-made crafts. Come hungry because there will be plenty of local food vendors and
an Octoberfest-style beer garden. As you relax with your food, you’ll enjoy live music by Whiskey Six, one of South Florida's favorite local country bands. While they mainly play modern country, don't be surprised to hear some Cash, Strait, Yoakam or other country classics thrown in. All you animal lovers out there will enjoy the Halloween costume show for dogs, spotlighting some of our cutest local adoptable pets. The Town of Jupiter’s Fall Fest is an event too good to miss! Mark your calendar for Sat., Oct. 7, and join us at The Plaza Down Under on the Riverwalk from noon to 5pm for a great time!

co v e r s t o r y K ERRY C OLV ET T
Practically Passionate By Darla Parris Smallwood
Want to know what Kerry Colvett is passionate about? Pull up a chair. This could take a while. From her family, to her work at G4S Secure Solutions USA, to her life in Martinique with her beloved dog Watson, to her volunteer work with Habitat for Humanity – even to her Peloton bike, her Fiat 124 Spider Abarth, and her favorite Tampa Bay sports teams – Kerry has quite a lot to be happy and excited about. Kerry has three sons: Jared, Kent, and Grant Ward. Twenty-nine year-old Jared Ward lives in Orlando with his wife Nicolette, while his brothers Kent and Grant Ward (26 and 23, respectively) live in Tampa. Not only are the Ward brothers their mother’s pride and joy, but in a roundabout way, they can even be credited with her finding her career calling, which eventually led to her being named Vice 8
| October 2017
President for Bid Management and Sales Support at G4S. A Sarasota native, Kerry earned her undergraduate degree in special education at Harding University in Searcy, Arkansas, and subsequently taught special education students for three years before transitioning to other work in the construction industry. Still, she hadn’t quite landed in a job that was just the right fit. After her divorce in 1996, aware that she had to find a position that would enable her to take care of her three boys, she signed on with the Wackenhut Corporation, now G4S. While working in business development on Florida’s west coast, Kerry was a two-time National Salesperson of the Year and five-time Sales Performance Award winner. In 2006, she was promoted to her current position and relocated to the corporation’s headquarters in Palm Beach County, where
she has served in a variety of business development and sales management roles. In her current role, Kerry focuses on development and implementation of sales strategy, including overseeing a team of bid managers. “The best part of my job is having a team of smart, creative people who are younger than me. In a way, I’ve come full circle. I’m back to teaching – only now I teach people how to develop professionally. And though I’m not really in sales anymore, I still get to come up with creative ways to promote what the company is doing and help the sales team do what I used to do.” “I was initially attracted to the stability of the family-owned business, but I really wasn’t convinced that the job would be anything more than temporary. For 21 years now, I’ve worked for the same person, and to this day, he teases me now and then by asking, ‘Is this still temporary?’” Kerry has lived in Martinique for the past five years, sharing her home with her three-year-old Havanese pup. “I especially
love the area I live in because it’s quiet. I’m surrounded by greenery, walking paths and bunnies, yet the location is convenient to everything I need.” That includes an easy commute to work, since G4S moved into its new building in Jupiter in 2011. Continued page 10
DEPRESSION. If you or someone you know is struggling with depression, there are options. At Neurocore Brain Performance Centers, we know depression can feel insurmountable and medications might not be the right fit. That’s why we use neurofeedback – an effective, med-free treatment using 21st century science and technology to treat conditions at the core. Our comprehensive assessment and innovative treatment plans are customized for each person’s unique needs. You’re not the same as everyone else, so don’t be treated like it.

Having such a comfortable, wonderful place to live, says Kerry, (and having been able to provide the same for her sons when they were growing up) is part of the reason that she finds volunteering with Habitat for Humanity so incredibly rewarding. “In 2011, on the actual moving day when G4S relocated its headquarters from Palm Beach Gardens to Jupiter, the staff couldn’t be in the new building yet. We were looking for a project, so about 70 of us went and painted the exterior of the Jupiter’s Habitat for Humanity Thrift Store.” G4S has gone on to sponsor several Habitat houses and to make Habitat for Humanity one of the main charities that the company regularly supports. On January 1, 2014, Kerry sent a note to Habitat, asking how she could personally become even more involved. “With my sons all grown up, I wasn’t volunteering in their schools anymore, and my mother, whom I had cared for for several years, had died in 2013.” Used to helping out, Kerry began channeling even more of her energy toward Habitat. Since her initial involvement six years ago, she has served as a board member and as board secretary. Named Board President at Habitat for Humanity of Palm Beach County this past July, Kerry became the first woman to serve in this position in its 31-year history. She recently embarked on a Habitat for Humanity Global Village trip to India with Habitat for Humanity International to build homes overseas. “We spent time with the families there, and saw the real India, not the tourist India.” There are many places where you can volunteer and make a difference, Kerry adds, but at Habitat, you have the unique opportunity to get your hands dirty, to get out there and work on the roof, to meet the families who will live under it, and to actually see where your time and money go. 10

“I get to meet the children who will now have a stable home, and to see the many positive effects that has on their lives. I feel happy that I live in a great community and love my house. I enjoy helping others feel that too.” Yep, it’s a rich, full life for Kerry, and we haven’t even touched on her relatively newfound love for her Peloton, the “super-cool” at-home spin bike connected to live streaming classes with an online community. Not only is the Peloton getting Kerry in shape, but it’s introduced her to a whole new group of friends, both virtual and in-the-flesh, who share her Peloton enthusiasm. However, Kerry does get off that bike long enough to attend 25-or-so Rays games a year. The self-proclaimed “crazy obsessive baseball fan” may have to stay off even longer in order to achieve her goal of visiting all 30 Major League parks. Maintaining her office “shrine” to her favorite Rays player, center fielder Kevin Kiermaier, could also take a bite out of her Peloton time. And if you’re wondering why her other favorite ride, a spiffy little black-and-white-with-with-red-trimmed Fiat 124 Spider Abarth, sports a Buccaneers plate, instead of one honoring the Rays… Well, it’s pretty simple, says Kerry: “I love Bucs football too, but it’s mostly because their colors match my car better.” Who says passion and practicality can’t co-exist? ————————————————————————————————————— Do you have a story to share, or do you know a neighbor who does?

The volunteers, many of whom are parents of children with disabilities, envisioned the creation of local community-based programs to educate and help their children lead productive lives. Incorporated in 1958, The Arc has ever since been providing remarkable services, continuing education, rights advocacy, loving care and family support. Today, our programs offer a continuum of care for a lifetime. Services can begin as early as during pregnancy to minimize or prevent developmental delays. Options are available to address a variety of needs for infants, children, teens, adults and families. The Arc of Palm Beach County’s work touches all corners of the community. Every year, we serve more than 2,800 families. Our meaningful programs help us change lives every day. Below are some highlights of what the Arc accomplishes
each year: • The Arc’s Career Transition program prepares individuals with developmental disabilities. (Many are already employed part-time.) • The Arc provides an employment specialist for participants working in the community. • The Arc partners with local companies to employ Arc clients part-time through the Enclave Employment program. • The Arc operates four group homes for individuals with developmental disabilities. The homes are located throughout Palm Beach County, housing residents with varying abilities, and ranging in age from 22 to 82. • The Arc’s day camp for children ages 5-17 provides great social opportunities during winter, spring and summer breaks from school. More than 100 campers have participated. • The Arc’s Respite Care program employs trained professional caregivers who provide short-term care to children with developmental disabilities, giving parents or guardians personal time to attend to their own medical appointments and errands – or to simply rest. During most years, more than 180 families are served as the program provides more than 24,800 hours of care to community families. • The Arc’s Healthy Steps for Young Children program, a part of their early intervention services, serves more than 800 children during most years. More than 3,000 developmental/family risk screens are completed, and the program’s developmental specialists provide services at more than 1600 well-child visits.
