Author Biography

Hi, I’m Jennifer. I’m a recovering perfectionist and lifelong learner. I’m a passionate home chef, curious traveler, and avid fly-fisher. When I’m not writing, cooking, eating, drinking, shopping, traveling, or fishing, you can find me at the barn learning from my three Arabian horses, Tana, Rocco, and Tank.
I’m on a mission to help you unlock your genius, harness your SWAGGER, and start thriving.
You see, my older sister passed away when she was only in her thirties. I always had the feeling that, for some reason, she wasn’t able to figure out how to create joy and happiness in her life. It seemed like she was always trying to find external things to make her happy and doing things for the wrong reasons.
I can only wonder if I’d been able to help my sister see how amazing she already was. I wonder if I could’ve helped her see that she didn’t have to be more, she just needed to be her, the person she was born to be. Perhaps she might still be here today.
I wasn’t able to help my sister, but I am here to help you right now. This is why I’m so passionate about using all of the knowledge, skills, and expertise I have developed throughout my life to help people stop wasting their lives surviving and start thriving. And that is what Claim Your SWAGGER is all about.
