George Fuller, MDiv, D.Min, CSA, Certified Mediator has dedicated his life to helping people navigate the challenges that confront them. As a minister for 35 years George was drawn to those who struggle and are often overlooked. He discovered his gift for helping people sort through their issues, find the strength they need, and move into lives of purpose and vitality.
Silver Compassion was born out of George’s desire to share the wisdom and practical insights gained from his ministry and a 13 year journey of caring for both his parents and in-laws throughout their end of life. He discovered how complex and emotionally draining it was to be a caregiver. While he longed for more time to love and spend time with those precious to him, he needed to find information and advice. Now he knows what could have been done in advance that would have allowed him to focus on simply loving them during their final years, months and days.
George holds a Masters of Divinity and Doctorate of Divinity with a specialty in small group process. He’s a Certified Senior Advisor (CSA) through the Society of Certified Senior Advisors. He’s also a trained mediator in Family/Financial Mediation and Superior Court Mediation with extensive experience in Transformative Mediation, an approach that helps clients stay focused on their relationships while making difficult decisions and working through conflicts. He also helped lead a project that established a North Carolina chaplain’s program, Community Care of Wake and Johnston County that helps Medicaid patients get their Advance Directives in place, ensuring their wishes are carried out when they’re at their most vulnerable.
In his free time, George enjoys playing guitar, singing, reading, fishing, time in the woods, long talks on the porch and date night with his wife of 35 years, Tammy. They have two sons, two grandsons, and one granddaughter. George and Tammy live in Raleigh, North Carolina.
