I'm Jen

work with me

hey there!

I help women in their 40s, 50s, and beyond finally put themselves first for a SELFISH minute and live their second half even better than their first. It’s time to start a midlife revolution; one that gives you a full body, toe-curling YES and we’re not just talking orgasms here (though those are important too).


are you a no bs midlife woman?

cw: trauma, abuse including that of a minor

We can all agree…trauma sucks. And while we all wished it was different…trauma happens far more often than many of us even know.

If you’ve experienced trauma, you get the funny ways it shows up in your life from what triggers you to how you feel in your body. And it never goes away…you just find ways to work with it.

Eunice Brownlee and I dive into this and so much more in this raw + vulnerable story of trauma, resilience, and hope.

What I want people to take away from this conversation is the hope. That we are resilient, we are strong and there are ways to create safety in our worlds. There are people like Eunice, myself, and so many others out there that just want to help because we’ve been through it and we understand it. You are not alone.

  • I cannot recommend this book highly enough and I recommend it lots! The Body Keeps the Score by Bessel Van der Kolk is an excellent read to help you understand how trauma is stored in the body and why your body reacts the way it does.
  • If this episode has you realizing you have unresolved trauma, I have lots and lots of resources for you.
  • The Kindred Voice – a space dedicated to helping women share their stories
