“I grew up in sunny South Florida, going to the beach and riding horses. In high school I participated in the IB program, where I met the most amazing guy.
In 2000, I moved to Arizona to marry that amazing guy, who’d relocated to Phoenix, and I later graduated from The University of Phoenix in 2005 with a degree in business-marketing.
In 2009 I suffered a miscarriage, our then two year old (who is now healthy and brilliant) had surgery for a brain tumor, and I became ill before being diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis.
In 2011, I’d had enough of my unfulfilling professional life, and a business that I served instead of vice versa. I decided to make some big changes, and start helping companies make meaningful connections with their customers and workforce. I took the opportunity to redefine my own career, infusing authenticity and purpose into my company every step of the way, read the story here.” Jenn
