Jennifer focuses on helping women who are heading into the second half of their life – 40 years and beyond. She realized (as she achieved that age herself) that it was easy to feel a little bit lost. Goals had been met…career had been built…kids were older…what next? She believes the second half can be incredibly amazing if lived with intention. Her goal is to help as many women as she can to do just that.
If you’ve ever thought there’s more to life but you can’t figure out what it is, Jennifer will help. If you want to wake up with energy and excitement about your day, Jennifer will help. If you know what you want but can’t quite take the leap, you guessed it, Jennifer will help.
