Jenny is a very credible and engaging panel speaker. She embodies her own phrase: ‘Stay aware and stay humble’ as she provides her unique perspective at the same time connecting it with the perspective of ther fellow panelists. Clearly knowledgeable about her subject matter, she is poised, thoughtful, and articulate – a powerful combination that creates a sense of openness and dialogue among panel members and the audience.
— Karen M.
Jenny identified critical themes in the assessment data she gathered for her clients, articulated those themes in ways that would be best digested by those clients, and facilitated strong feedback sessions to enable meaningful development. Her clients complimented her for the insight she generated and in many cases, asked her for additional consultation and support.
— Kristie W. (hired Jenny as a coach for her organization)
Jenny is a dynamic speaker that was able to speak to a large group of parents and students on the importance of social emotional learning. Presentation was informative, fun and interactive for our families, most importantly they engaged in important conversation. Looking forward to future collaborations and projects!
— Chris Sandoval M.Ed., South Pointe Middle School
I heard Jenny speak about 52 Essential Conversations and 52 Essential Relationships at UC Irvine in 2019. As a middle-school teacher and mom of an almost-two-year-old, I was excited to learn about these resources that will be invaluable across multiple age groups and settings. Jenny is a very relatable and knowledgeable speaker who draws upon her personal and professional experience in parenting, business, school administration, and educational research to underscore the importance of social emotional learning (SEL).
— Beth Sharkey, Middle School teacher and parent
