Hi I'm Jena!
I help go-getter professionals figure out what they want to do with their lives and how to get there. I've worked with hundreds of clients who as a result of working with me, have made more money, felt more fulfilled in their work and landed their dream jobs.
The other thing I do for clients? I make the process fun.
Finding a job, let alone a fulfilling career, can be really stressful. My goal is to make you have as much fun as possible while still working with the end goal in mind: finding you a career that you love. With some quick wit, come-to-Jesus moments and a couple of swift kicks in the tush, I will push you in the direction you need to go to be successful. My coaching philosophy is a mixture of "all-the-feels" and "action-packed-application". Together, we get to the bottom of the issue and build a plan from the ground up to boost your confidence, attract employers and grow your network.
I not only know these tools and tactics work because it's helped my clients.
I know, because I've personally landed multiple dream jobs using them.
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.
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.
