Therapy Heals The Past –
Coaching Moves You Forward

From embracing every moment of motherhood and community involvement to surviving a heartbreaking divorce to reinventing myself with the career I love today, I know how frightening – and thrilling – change can be. Especially when it’s change you didn’t necessarily anticipate, or even realize was needed.

After years of being a silent sufferer and leading the life I thought I was supposed to lead – and then through my own searching and self-exploration – I finally became extremely intentional and fierce with myself.

I discovered my true passion and launched
Excavive™ Coaching & Consulting.

When I embraced my values
and my authenticity,
I was able to map out my own mission:

  • To be an empowering and enlivening force for women globally to live authentically and beautifully.
  • To excavate and activate the true spirit in women, personally and professionally, through coaching, teaching, speaking and writing.
  • To lead groups of people to synergistically be their best together with heart, passion, purpose and strength.

I frequently refer to our meeting notes and exercises, and I hear Jennifer’s voice almost daily in my head: ‘What do you want to create for yourself? Don’t put rocks in your backpack. Go toward money first. Always.’

There’s no doubt that, thanks to her magical influence, the second phase of my life will be even more exciting than the first.”
