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

You need to honor every part of yourself…even the part that doesn’t want to get out of bed.

How do you find motivation when it’s hard to get out of the bed and not just because the bed is super cozy with luxuriously soft sheets and a down comforter that’s just the right weight – you know – not too heavy but light enough to keep you warm? But because life feels heavy and you’re constantly in the grind going nowhere fast?

That’s exactly the question Lisa Orkin and I explore in this week’s #goingtherewithjen. It’s one thing to be young and have your entire life ahead of you to figure your shit out…but entirely different when you’re 57.

I’m also guessing Lisa and I aren’t alone when we find ourselves running away from success. Why is that? Listen in to hear our thoughts…

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!!!
