“I started working with Jen because I wanted to level up my presentation skills. But over successive sessions, I discovered that she can do so much more. Nowadays, she is my all-around leadership coach, helping me manage conflict, emotions, self-presentation and the list goes on.”
“I sounded knowledgeable, engaged, but more than anything, what struck me was how like myself I came across, not this overly-polished, uptight speaking version of myself. It felt like a breakthrough.”
