Franklin Muhammad is a Life, Intimacy & Certified Clinical Sexuality Coach and Motivational Speaker with a BS in Health Care Management from Southern Illinois University, an MS in Health Care Management from Marymount University, an Executive MBA from the Naval Post Graduate School, and a Sexuality Coach certification from the Dr. Rachael Institute.
Intimacy coaching under The Marriage Institute (TMI) involves identifying and removing barriers to “In to me see” that is not often conceptualized. Franklin brings a unique approach to encouraging healthy couple's and individual relationships. His philosophy is that taking ownership and responsibility of your contributions to the challenges of the relationship has the ability to change the trajectory of life. Franklin is committed to demystifying the prescribed societal roles for marriages and families. He empowers the client to explore what works for them and develops strategies that embrace love, compassion, and commitment that builds an everlasting connection.
Franklin has spent the last 27 years in the largest leadership factory this nation has to offer – the United States Navy. From 1992 through 2005, Franklin served as a Hospital Corpsman and led Sailors and managed resources in multiple capacities. His duty assignments include Naval Hospital Portsmouth, VA, Naval Hospital Yokosuka, Branch Clinic Washington Navy Yard, National Naval Medical Center Bethesda and Naval Medical Education and Training Command. One of his most noteworthy assignments was managing a $46 million-dollar tuition program for 1300 students at 164 colleges and universities with zero unauthorized commitments.
Franklin’s strong leadership acumen and education accomplishments led to commissioning as a Medical Service Corps Officer in 2008. In 2011, he served in the Persian Gulf onboard the USS Enterprise as the Medical Admin Officer when Osama Bin Laden was captured and killed. While stationed in Japan, Franklin deployed to the Nato Role 3 Multi-National Medical Unit as the Operations Officer in Kandahar, Afghanistan where they sustained a 98% survival rate. Franklin believes the most rewarding assignment was Department Head, Materials Management, Naval Hospital Yokosuka Japan. He led the department to sustain operational readiness for a major hospital and seven branch clinics in an overseas environment. This sustained superior performance led to selection as Junior Logistician of the Year in 2015.
This environment gave Franklin a unique, front-row seat to the challenges of romantic and platonic relationships worldwide. It led him to recognize that men and women seek to be affirmed, loved and understood. Franklin believes this level of actualization “can only manifest in personal truth and authentic communication”.
Franklin has been married to Dr. Jeannelle Perkins-Muhammad for 20 years. Together, they offer life-changing marriage enrichment and intimacy conferences to couples internationally. They have two spectacular young adult daughters, love to travel and seek new adventures in life. He and Jeannelle agree that there is never a dull moment in marriage and relationship, so we must keep our skills ready for the challenge.
