“Hiring a personal coach was something I was very hesitant about doing. I did not have confidence that whoever I chose would be able to really understand me as a person yet a businessman. In no time my fears were put at ease. Jennifer had amazing insight into me. Often times in the past I have felt alone, isolated and a bit of an outcast. After a few sessions I began to understand myself better and not feel at all like an outcast. I realized there were many people out there just like me. People with the same fears and worries who just needed the tools to handle them properly and put them in the proper perspective. That alone alleviated quite a bit of stress. But just as important was the caring that Jennifer showed. This was something I was not anticipating. Oftentimes she will email me to say she was thinking of me and wanted to know how I was doing. Whenever I have a question I can email her and know I’ll get a quick response and not be ‘on the clock’ for doing so. In this day and age where it seems so many people are just about the money, Jennifer is not. She TRULY cares.”

WHAT IS GIFTEDNESS?
Giftedness is a mind construction – a way we take in the world, perceive and organize it. That construction is statistically uncommon, in terms of speed, complexity and intensity, and many gifted people don’t recognize they are gifted because they think everyone else is like them. The way a gifted person expresses their giftedness depends on many factors, such as type (intellectual only, or intellectual plus emotional, creative, and so on), level (mild, moderate, high, exceptional or profound), presence of other challenges (such as learning disabilities or neurological abnormalities), and the amount of support, recognition, appreciation and mirroring they’ve had in their lives. In other words, giftedness does not always look the same and is not a one-size-fits-all concept. Each gifted person’s mind comes with its own unique challenges and opportunities, and that’s what we help our gifted clients to embrace and constructively co-create with in their lives!
ABOUT OUR WORK
“Jen’s coaching really helped me getting my focus back! Her insights have given me momentum. I think about the big picture and how I could utilize my story to help others. She is a very warm and caring person and at the same time she really hits the nail on the head when it comes to finding the missing pieces. I am working with horses and what is true with them, is true for us: it’s the small things that bring about monster changes. Jen also never pushes you into something, nor does she work off a prepared list. She is VERY intuitive and sharp and I felt as if she knew what I thought before I knew it. I am not easy to be excited, nor would I ever recommend someone unless I was 100% convinced that they were good. I thank Jen for being there for me and helping me getting my focus back. I would not hesitate one second to contact her again if I felt lost. Jen, just wanted to say THANK YOU for your direction and your understanding! Keep up the good work and I would love to see your potential to empower more people by being their mentor.”
“Michelle is an amazing person to work with. She is knowledgeable about resources and helps people navigate the mental health system. She guides you through the process without telling you what to do or how to do it.”
“Jen was the right light at the right time for me. I had spent a good portion of my early adult life trying to figure myself out and how I fit into the world, and while I had made significant progress, there were missing pieces – the gifted pieces – that were keeping me stuck. Jen helped me fill in those missing pieces and ‘unlock the whole’ so that I could move forward. Without her coaching and guidance, there were aspects of myself I don’t think I would have ever embraced, let alone even recognized. Jen is an exceptional coach and human being, and should you ever have the opportunity to work with her, grab it with arms wide open!”
I have done the assessment session with Jennifer. This was an amazing experience to connect with such a beautiful person. Many things were going through my mind and I was still having so many questions after my discovery of giftedness a few years ago. Something was suddenly making some sense… I recently stumbled upon the difference that being highly gifted also brings into the mix. Jen was able to provide confirmation, comfort, advice and guidance that will change the way I will see and organize my life forever. I felt at home. I cannot thank you enough for these two hours that changed my perception of life. I would recommend the assessment session to anyone who would like to better understand how giftedness has influenced and shaped their life. Thanks Jen!
Jen’s time management course for gifted people goes way beyond simple time management techniques. It allows profound self-reflection and group sharing on the aspects of ourselves and our lives which make it challenging to manage our professional and personal responsibilities. Included are identifying our needs, rhythms, personality style, letting go, and going to the essential. It has been the best self-development course I’ve taken – one from which I have seen a clear “before” and “after” in my life!
“When I first contacted Jennifer for professional coaching, I did so hoping for a number of possible outcomes. I thought coaching might reveal my current role in a clearer light and help me perform it in a more effective and satisfying way. Or perhaps coaching might finally convince me that the time was right to pursue radically new possibilities. The reality was that it somehow managed to do both at the same time. Through a continuously evolving series of discussions, explorations and reflections on recommended readings, Jennifer enabled me to reframe my sense of self and to identify and overcome several long-standing personal and professional challenges. I was pointed towards the work of numerous inspiring writers and public speakers, often bringing me back in touch with truths I knew as a child but had lost in adulthood. Sometimes reassuring, sometimes provocative, always interested, Jennifer showed the knowledge, experience and insights needed to help me rebalance my position in life and in the professional world. All in all, this has been and continues to be an investment of huge value to me and my work.”
