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

Medication doesn’t “fix” anything. It makes it so I can deal with the actual problems, rather than making the problems feel and seem insurmountable.

You guys….this episode hits me in all the feels and I don’t say that lightly…at all. Each guest and episode is so special to me but this one is extra near and dear to my heart as we talk about depression and showing up as your rawest, most vulnerable, most mundane self.

Megan Dowd calls herself a compassionate hardass and I can soooo relate. She’s also master of funny faces, business therapist for neurodiverse run businesses, and all around delightful human being.

Megan and I talk about the importance of sharing our stories with healthy boundaries, toxic positivity (listen in on one of Megan’s spicy soapboxes on Insta), and ways we can tune into our bodies and give it exactly what it needs whether that’s a rage walk or a calming, relaxing bath.

This episode is incredibly relatable, down-to-earth, FUNNY, and full of amazing tips on learning to listen to your body and giving it what it needs during a depression cycle. I so hope you listen in and share with friends + family that could use some real, practical advice with a heaping of laughter and realness.

MEGAN DOWD is a business coach and brand therapist. She launched her business in 2017 to help purpose driven business owners rediscover their Core Values and reclaim their WHY.

Prior to opening her business, Megan worked in theatre, even earning her PGDip from LAMDA in London.

She believes in multi-sensory storytelling, trusting yourself, and being human first and always.

When not helping you run your business seamlessly and coherently, you may find her hanging out with her mad-scientist husburrito, dismantling diet culture, or droppin’ it like it’s hot (living room dance party, anyone?).

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!!!
