When I started coaching with Jen, I was feeling trapped. I was stretched thin by family care taking challenges, the financial demands of owning a farm, and working a job I no longer enjoyed to fund my riding passion- all while watching my riding grind to a halt due to horse health issues. I needed help finding a way forward and untangling it all. Jen is a phenomenal listener. She helped me find my way out of a crisis of paralysis and "I'll get to it tomorrow" thinking to make some long overdue changes in my life. She helped me articulate my core values, and develop a concrete plan to start moving forward, one baby step at a time. I resolved to invest the required time to prepare for a job search which resulted in a dream job offer. Nine months later, I have an incredible new job, I've made difficult decisions about complicated family matters, and sold a resource-intensive horse farm that I was no longer enjoying!

When I reached out to Jen, I could see the picture of who I wanted to become in my mind. I knew what I was capable of. I had big goals for my career, speaking and writing. But, on my own, I couldn't get past the voice of my Inner Critic. I didn't know that I also had a supportive coach in my head! I would never have found that on my own. Once I accessed it, I found a whole new way of being. My writing and speaking both flourished.
 
Jen meets me where I’m at for each session. She accepts me fully for who I am in each moment. If I don't do what I consider to be my "homework”, I now focus on the bigger picture instead of beating myself up. Through this perspective shift, we were able to get to some very valuable areas that I wouldn't have thought about pursuing.
 
Executive coaching with Jen has allowed me to change my relationship with myself. This has dramatically improved my relationships with my family. Such a surprise! It's amazing how even little changes allowed me to drop the microfocus I had on others and everything I felt they were doing wrong. I felt grounded in myself and became more patient and accepting of those around me. I have stopped doubting myself. I can whole heartedly say that I am a prolific, inspirational writer and at my company, I am a valued leader. Thank you Jen!

A while back, I’d been clinging, unhappily, to a part-time job with a company I've worked with for twelve years. I’d also recently, as a result of the executive coaching I’ve done with Jen, secured an Executive Director position with an organization I love. I thought I could keep both positions and, in fact, thought I needed to for the sake of security. But then I realized (thank you, Coach!) that it was not only burning me out but making me feel like a minion. I felt demoralized at the culture at the old company and it was keeping me from fully embracing my new executive director role.
 
Well, fast-forward to where we are today: I am knocking this new job out of the ballpark! I am free to work from my office at my farm. This was all a part of my vision I outlined with Jen several years ago. Wow. "One day, you knew what you had to do..."
 
Jen really has an extraordinary ability to take a snapshot of your potential--not who you are today but who you see yourself becoming. She helps you identify your vision and your goals and then takes you on a step-by-step path to get where you want to go. She knows how to help you make things happen. Jen is simply the best in the business at what she does!

I was a hard sell. I had done "life coaching" before, as well as therapy and professional coaching, and I generally always ended up stuck. Initially, I did not understand what Jen could offer me that was different. But I had heard good things so I gave Cadence Coaching a try. I soon began to understand how our conversations - and my own self-discovery - would become the foundation for much more. During our sessions, she met me where I was at each day. If I needed to talk personal, we'd work through that. If I wanted to talk professional, that was on the agenda. She has the wildly unique ability to toggle with ease between the personal and the professional. I have only made such progress professionally by understanding how my personal history impacts my professional life. She has always found a way to identify the core issues at the root of my anxiety or “stuckness” and guide me through it. I now spend much more time in a happy, joyful place. I'm able to live in the moment and be excited about what’s ahead rather than living in the past or worrying about the future. I’ve been able to develop a clear career path that is wholly fulfilling and has allowed me to continue to work in my industry while doing things I’m passionate about. Love this woman!

Executive Coaching with Jen has been a game changer for me. It has helped me to advance my career and enjoy my personal life. Jen has given me the ability to enjoy and embrace my life in a way I have not been able to previously. When I started working with her, I was an anxious mess with so many life changes happening that I was not able to manage or fully embrace.
 
While working with Jen, I went from always feeling anxious to now, living more in the moment and enjoying my life. My career has flourished and my personal relationships have improved. I have learned to embrace each moment and appreciate the relationships around me. Coaching has positively impacted my marriage as well – my husband and I have moved into a stronger place as partners due to our work with Jen. She is just so good! She gets to the heart of things quickly and speaks from a place of understanding. I always come away with so many practical tools and I have moved away from living in a place of constant anxiety and worry. I now feel empowered and present in my life.

In absolute seriousness, working with Jen changed my life and it's one of the best investments I've ever made. I was at a place in my life where I couldn't see a way to move forward. I’d become despondent and deeply unhappy. Jen did a presentation at a summer camp I was organizing and her words hit me like lightning. I instantly knew that she would be the one to help me find my way back to happiness. I reached out to her for coaching and the rest is history.
 
Jen never makes me feel bad about the places where I get stuck. She is always compassionate and sympathetic. But, at the same time, she won't let me get stuck in destructive mindsets. It's a very delicate balance and I'm always grateful for her skills in moments where I really need compassion- but not indulgence.

Jen has changed the way I move in the world. I've learned to check my decisions against my values to make sure I'm making decisions that move me towards my goals in an authentic way. I’m clearer about who I am, more present and always moving toward a new vision!
 
So… the short version is that Jen helped me through a career change. The long version is that working with Jen changed my life- twice! Working with Jen has helped me get clear on what I want out of life. Once I get clear on what I want, I am able to go out and get it. As a result, I’ve been able to successfully make the move from the equestrian world into the corporate world. Which was a big, scary deal!
 
If you're serious about making moves in your life and you want a partner for that work, working with Jen is the very best choice you can make. Do. Not. Hesitate!

When I started Life Design Coaching with Jen, I was confused about what direction I wanted my life to go in. I felt frustrated and like I was spinning my wheels. Jen has really helped me find direction. The coaching we’ve done together has changed my outlook on life and the way I feel about myself. She seems to understand every situation and I now feel empowered to navigate every challenge that comes up. Coaching has impacted my life in so many ways! I am much healthier and happier. I lost weight and reached my fitness goals. I feel more confident. As for my career, I’ve accomplished some big certifications and become more assertive- I’m so much happier and focused on my future career plans.
 
I loved knowing that I was going to have a conversation with Jen every month during a really challenging time. We worked together in 2020, during COVID and it felt very reassuring and comforting knowing that she was there as I was figuring out the next steps in my life and career. I am much clearer on what I want out of life now. I'm so happy that I found her!

I heard Jen speak at an event during a time in my life when I was feeling dissatisfied with my job and found myself job hunting. I was also feeling pretty anxious about life in general.  I really liked the way she approached decision making and self-analysis in her presentation so I decided to give her a call and discuss what Life Design coaching with her would look like. During our initial phone interview, I realized that it would be great to have someone to help me consider what did I really want out of life – career, family, hobbies – and how could I change my decision making patterns to be more intentional.
 
Early in the process, Jen helped me start to recognize some unhealthy patterns I used in decision making (i.e. letting guilt be a primary driver!).  It seemed so obvious in hindsight but having someone reflect back in a non-judgmental manner was really powerful in pushing me to explore how I could change the pattern on a conscious level. The process of regular calls created a supportive environment to think about patterns and try new ways of approaching decision making and recognizing what things were in my control.  I find myself consciously now considering the role guilt plays in my life at a conscious level. It has been quite freeing!
 
Now, almost a year later, I feel a general sense of calm in life.  I have been able to maintain it and seek it as a way of being. I pause. I breathe. I think more about what I want as a pull rather than what I am doing out of guilt – a push.
Jen is so positive, reflective, and authentic. I joke with friends that working with her is like doing action oriented counseling – or counseling for people who want to focus on moving forward and creating change!
