Snuggles from my youngest child


Meditation + Breath Work


You look at the growing pile of laundry and the to-do list you promised yourself you'd get to today. Surely you'd have a system figured out by now. 

You're grappling with loss or the feeling that you don't even know who you are anymore.

Where do you find joy in the midst of all this?

Imagine you're running late with a cup of coffee you've already reheated two times.

Slow down and take a few deep breaths.

There is joy even here.

When my own life was shattered by unimaginable loss, I learned that new chapters can be challenging to navigate. However, as I began my path to healing, I also discovered my greatest mission in life: to help others on their journey to live and lead well.

But how could this introverted, 90's hip-hop, donut lovin' woman help others?

I became a Certified Professional Life Coach and a Registered Yoga Teacher. 

I began offering tools and resources to help women connect and have the courage to fill their cups with the things that make them healthy, happy, resilient and full of purpose.

These experiences prepared me to create A Joyful Life with Jennifer, where you come as you are and learn ways to ground yourself in your values and live in alignment.

I drew on my experience with loss, my military career and my passion for wellbeing.

There’s no one way to live and lead YOUR best life, so my offer to you is this:

Come discover what living well to lead well feels like. Let’s partner together to understand your energy, uncover your values and create your wellbeing plan.

Are you ready to start your next chapter?
