In our ongoing coaching engagement, she helps me stay focused on my goals, poses thoughtful questions about how to work through barriers, and points me toward resources that help me learn about myself and my team as we work to become better leaders.

Hi, I’m Jennifer

I have been coaching aspiring leaders since 2009. I work with senior leaders, small business owners, and high-potential leaders committed to changing for the future of the organizations they lead and the communities they live.

I guide clients through a safe, thought-provoking, and creative process that helps them overcome habitual patterns that prevent them from reaching their true leadership potential. With my help, clients heal broken connections, learn to recognize and articulate their emotions, and unlock new sources of creativity and productivity that put them on the right path to personal and professional fulfillment.

My coaching encourages full-body engagement. This means you feel the change in how you approach leadership and life challenges, and you sense the shift in your synergy with those around you. As your confidence grows, your team (and superiors) will trust you more than ever before.

Help For…

Senior LeaderS

While L&D professionals offer education and training benefits, Jennifer closes the gap with specialized coaching and development for members of key departments and individuals in critical positions. Clients praise Jennifer for bringing new focus and determination to the workplace, locating resources that support long-term growth and improvement, and helping good leaders become great leaders.

Working with Jennifer has been extraordinarily beneficial and deeply impactful for me. Jennifer has helped me sort through professional disappointment and challenge in a way I wasn’t sure was possible. After finding new energy and clear purpose, I am “re-careering in place,” taking on a bigger, broader leadership role in my organization. Moreover, Jennifer has helped me to reconnect with my authentic self, to find better balance and a healthier outlook not just on work but life. I can’t recommend Jennifer highly enough. If you are ready to do the work to move yourself to a place of greater fulfillment, Jennifer is the coach you need.

I utilized some somatic awareness and asked myself when I felt uncomfortable, "Is this unsafe or just uncomfortable?" It helped reduce my stress level at the moment and clarified the situation.

Working with Jennifer has been enlightening, and a little scary. She asks the right questions and knows how to dig just deep enough to get you to confront barriers you know are true, despite your best efforts to bury them. By allowing me to shape the content and format of each call—and checking in with me between sessions—she reminded me that I am in control of my emotions, plans, and professional growth. Now, I feel like nothing can stop me from progressing wherever I focus my energy next.
