Hi I'm Jena! 

Welcome, new friends - I'm so pumped we're about to do life together.  My hope is that when you come to this site, you find a safe place to be imperfect.  That you are comforted that you're not alone.  That you see that we're all a little messy.  That you can be rest assured that being a twenty-something is some tough stuff.  Not only that, I hope that you are inspired to go after your dreams.  All of them.

....whether you're looking to change your career
....whether you're thinking of starting your own business
....whether you're trying to figure out what it means to have radical faith

I'm here to lend a hand.

I know what it's like to go through a quarter life crisis.  To have doubts.  To change careers.  To find a job that I (finally!) love.  To start a side hustle. To break free from bondage. To experience freedom through Christ. 

I'm a career coach. Entrepreneurial spirit. Multi passionate believer. 

And ultimately....

My mission is to help ambitious men and women channel their energy towards passions that really matter, passions they were made for.


More of the fun stuff

I made my way to the 212 by way of the 412 over three years ago now (Go Steelers!).  NYC and I have a love-hate relationship, but lately we've been communing quite nicely.  Mainly, because I love my job.  And my "framily".  When I'm not hustling away, you can find me chit chatting about sentimental #lifegoals with the other two-thirds of the Tall Trifecta, brunching with my church crew or running along the Hudson River.

In a world of Real Housewives, drama queens and Twitter feuds - it's sad to see the way women treat one another. Β My best advice if you're a lady is to find female friends like these two - pure of heart, strong to the core and caring beyond belief.

Thursday nights are set aside for wine.  And Friday nights for sleep.  I'm an early riser, a wannabe cook, ex-musical theater junkie and can plow through dozens of books in no time.  Next plan - to write one.  I miss watching football games with my family and find myself homesick for driving, my mom's impeccable taste in decor and my father's Bad Dad jokes.  

At the end of the day, I'm a believer in kindred spirits, handwritten notes and divine intervention.  My biggest desire is to encourage and inspire young men and women as they navigate the muddy waters of becoming an adult.  With a wee bit of wit, warm smiles, almond butter and come-to-Jesus moments I'm a firm believer that all things are possible through Him.
