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


Today, I have an absolutely transcendent conversation with Instagram expert, Tyler J. McCall about the deep stuff: depression, authenticity, and finding belonging by owning who you are and your reaction(s) to the shit that happens in life.

And, boy, there’s a lot of shit that happens.

In this episode, Tyler explains how he dealt with ongoing, clinical depression and discovered his own responsibility in owning his identity, his depression, and his isolation. He also talks about the importance of finding belonging through holding yourself accountable for your actions. (<==this is hard but OH SO NECESSARY)

The best part? You will leave this episode with tools to help you find your own authentic self on your quest for belonging and community.

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!!!
