Hi, I’m Jenn, an American living in London who decided to climb a tree instead of a ladder. I’ve navigated a career that has taken me to top executive level at a Fortune 500 company then through motherhood, entrepreneurship and back to the corporate world before striking out on my own again.
I have explored many avenues, negotiated a way of working that meant letting go of visibility as a symbol of productivity, untethered myself from a corporate role and a large part of my identity, been the only woman at the negotiation table, and created global best practices for a new product launch that hit $1 billion in one season.
Along the way I’ve learnt that ‘fancy a cuppa?’ is British-speak for ‘I need to talk’ and negotiating multi-million deals can be less mind-bending than negotiating bedtime with two toddlers. I love my career, but I am also a mother, wife, writer, painter, and adventurer who loves to travel, and I make sure I serve those parts of me, too.
Quick confession: I’m a coffee addict who plans my turtle-speed jogs so I can hit my favorite coffee shops on the way back.
I’m inspired daily by the unique journeys of those around me, people stepping out of their lane to discover a new world of possibilities. I want you too to find your spark, and design a life that is full of the sweet and savory flavors of new adventures.
