Since you found me, you’re likely considering—or are SO ready for—a change. Maybe you started with big dreams and big plans. You worked hard to get where you are, but then somewhere along the way, things changed. You feel depleted at the end of every day and keep thinking: “I just need to get through this day/month/year.”

You think there has to be a more fulfilling career path out there. Something that won’t inflate you with anxiety. Every. Sunday. Night.
An industry where you can feel inspired.
Coworkers who get you.
A place where you finally feel like you belong.

You're in the right place

Hi, I’m Jenn

i beliEve career success doesn't have to be at the expense of living a radiantly  happy + healthy lifestyle.

Before I became a career coach and HR consultant for heart-based professionals, my roots were deeply grounded in corporate America, including 15 years in HR departments at Fortune 200 organizations.

Now as a career coach and consultant, I've had the honor of supporting thousands of professionals around the world by assisting them with discovering and pursuing career intentions better aligned with their hearts and spirits while prioritizing well-being—and I believe we're all the better for it.

HEART-based career development is the secret to career fulfillment. It isn’t about working with non-profits or making less money for the sake of creativity. Instead, it’s about pausing to reflect, learning to match your unique skills and experiences with desired positions, and executing a thoughtful strategy that prioritizes your well-being and aligns with your values. 
In short, it is career development from the inside out — a process where you create harmony among your body, mind, and spirit.

HEART-Based Approach to career development

at the roots

While I believe a HEART-based approach to career development is natural and necessary, I also know…in our hustle culture, it often feels like a revolutionary act. 

With a HEART-based approach to career planning, you'll learn to become a whole person—both in and out of work.

It's time to add a little more H.E.A.R.T. to your S.M.A.R.T. goals.

HEART-Based Career Development is NOT:
  • Making a career of your hobbies.
  • Following your passion.
  • Finding charitable work.
  • "Positive vibes only."

HEART-Based Career Development IS:
  • Aligning your career with your desired lifestyle.
  • Finding an industry that is meaningful to you.
  • Mapping your signature traits to a role that generates your energy.
  • A proactive, expert-led quest to a path that makes you come alive.
When you begin focusing your valuable time and energy on the things that align with your heart, the path forward becomes straight and clear.
