We met when we were both Senior leaders at WalMart. It was an instant connection. I left to start my own company. I had a clear vision but I wasn’t sure how to communicate it. With patience, compassionate listening, and a true desire to learn more about me Jen helped me clarify my voice and connect it to my why. I discovered my ideal customer and have built a better understanding about them with Jen’s guidance. Jen’s leadership helped me create and write my story, build my brand strategy, and ultimately give my business life. She is a uniquely gifted storyteller. Brands flourish because of this and so will yours. She is not only creative but her coaching approach is top-notch.
