I'm Jen


work with me

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 podcast

Do you ever meet someone and right away feel like home? That’s how I felt when I first met Jen Pavich and I’m thrilled to share some of her stories and wisdom with you today. 

Like me, Jen became a mom before she was ready and like me, Jen had some fairly traumatic events in her life that molded and shaped her. Pile on top of that a bout of homelessness, societal and patriarchal expectations and you have one helluva story. Also? We all need a friend like Jen’s Melissa – someone to give us a good kick in the pants and poke fun at our myriad quirks.

Jen likes to say she’s lived at least five lives from becoming a young single parent, homelessness, massively different career reinventions, and so much more. Jen shares with us her stories of trying to be the perfect mom, her journey through personal development and why she’s a passionate feminist and life coach working to make paradigm shifts with the existing power structures at play in our society. And oh how we are fucked up as a society! We need more Jens!




JEN PAVICH is a feminist life coach and creator of the Unquiet Sisterhood Podcast. Jen helps women overcome their internalized patriarchy so they can start addressing external barriers. She also not-so-secretly radicalizes women to become social justice warriors hellbent on upending the existing power structure.

Jen is accredited as a coach through the International Coach Federation (ICF). She’s also a certified facilitator in The Daring WayTM method created by Dr. Brené Brown.

Thank you for tuning in this week!
If these sorts of raw + organic convos are your cup of tea, please subscribe on your podcast app of choice and I’d be beyond happy if you leave a kind rating and/or review. It really does make a difference in getting Going There into the ears that need it the most!

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!!!
