hey there!

I'm a coach for have-it-all checked out profesh moms who secretly dream of running away but know that's not really the answer.

I'm also the host of Going There - a show dedicated to all the stuff we keep deep down inside but shouldn't.

“The person with the brain injury is NOT the best advocate for themselves…”

~ Amy Zellmer

It was a random day in February 2014 and Amy Zellmer found herself doing something she does multiple times a day – taking her (so adorable!!!) pup, Pixxie, outside for a bio break. Only this day would change the rest of Amy’s life including the work she does in the world. Amy slipped on a patch of black ice on her steep driveway and can still remember the exact sound of her skull hitting the pavement.

All concussions are Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) and most concussions resolve themselves in under six weeks but Amy’s took not just months and a number of different doctors, but years. When her neurologist finally told her – this is probably the best it’s going to get – Amy said WTF and took matters into her own hands.

Listen in as Amy shares her inspirational tale as a TBI survivor including the oh-so-important advocate work that takes her around the country.

 ARE YOU READY TO GO THERE?

Well hey there,

I am Bridgerton steamy sex scene level OBSESSED with helping women figure out exactly why they're so checked out and lie awake at night thinking this is not the life they imagined and wondering how the hell they got here and do they need to burn it all down and start over?






I'm Jen.

because that's a pretty exhausting way to live

Instead, I help them get clear on what a peeyourpants future means for them, get super curious and look at their lives objectively (because - hello - it's hella hard to identify what to change when we're knee deep in our emotions), decide which changes will have the biggest impact, and take intentional and thoughtful actions without having to burn down their entire world.

And because I'm a professional bossypants (actual title) and have the sense of humor of a 12-year-old boy - I'll get you there faster and with lots of inappropriate laughter while we do the deep inner work.

i'm so ready to get checked all the fuck way in!!!
