Who I am at my Core.
I am a unique, resilient woman thriving in a modern, ever-changing, beautiful and sometimes brutal world. I've navigated through a multitude of life challenges including childhood trauma, bankruptcy, marriage breakdown and addiction. I value kindness, authenticity and believe in the power of relationships. I am growing in boldness, gaining in wisdom and seeing with more clarity, how I can more authentically contribute to the well-being of others.
In my marriage, I am a loving, patient, interdependent and supportive partner. I will forever be a student of life and relationship. I have a joyful heart. I love to laugh, and it's in nature where I find the most peace. I am imperfect, fail often and am strangely... really okay with that. I am becoming a calm, centered, beautifully bold and caring Presence that wields a deep understanding of humanity as my tool for intelligent engagement and collaboration.
My name's Jen. And it's nice to meet you.
