Jennie is a wonderful speaking coach! She is incredibly kind, patient, and encouraging. I feel much more confident in how I present myself to others, especially those I've just met in the formal setting of an interview. Jennie has prepared me with warmup exercises to suit any type of mood, whether it be calming down or harnessing nervous energy in a positive way. Additionally, I learned effective ways to be more present and truly connect with people in interviews. I recommend working with Jennie- she is very genuine and truly cares about her students. I look forward to the chance to work with her in the future! - Willa Meyer Research Assistant, University of Chicago
Over the course of 8 weeks I worked with Jennie, she was able to help identify areas in my communication style which could be further improved, and provide specific techniques in how to improve. Reflecting on how I now communicate both in my work and personal life, I believe the coaching has assisted in developing my ability to focus my active listening, speak with clarity and explain technical details in a manner which is both interesting and relatable to the audience. Best of all, the lessons are a lot of fun! - Daniel Libralato Customer Success Analyst, Silicon Controls
Jennie's cheerful demeanor made everyone feel welcome. Her techniques to relax your body and project your voice were unique and really helpful. It was amazing how in under an hour, a class full of people could emerge speaking with more power and authority! - Kathleen Koch Founder and Executive Director, LeadersLink
I sought out Jennie when I was struggling to speak up about ideas that were important to me. My voice would physically shake and become audibly strained. Jennie transformed my understanding of breath, coaching me through how to use my breath to regulate both my voice and my emotions. Perhaps most importantly, our sessions gave me the courage to pursue outside help in other ways - seeking freedom not just in my speech, but in my voice and in myself. I had never sought out coaching before; I especially encourage anyone considering coaching for the first time to reach out to Jennie. She brought practical strategies and tools to each session, and her calm, compassionate nature was a joy to work with. I am truly grateful! - Research Scientist, University of Washington
Jennie provides an open and welcoming atmosphere and concrete techniques for confident public speaking. I appreciate her professionalism and would recommend the class to any and all! - Harley Stokes, Leland Fellow, Congressional Hunger Center
Jennie's workshop on MindfulPublic Speaking was exactly what I'd been looking for. When I speak publicly, I'm often in front of different audiences with significantly different expectations. Maybe its the Mayor, Baltimore residents, or an agent I'm trying to pitch a book to. And I struggle connecting with those disparate audiences in a meaningful way--I typically find myself rushing and not communicating effectively. Jennie's techniques of grounding have been so helpful. I feel more present and engaged, and like I actually conveyed what I wanted. I'm even able to correct myself when I feel the anxiety kicking back in, which is huge! - PS Gear Author, "Charlotte Gnoll"
Working with Jennie, has been amazing, life changingI Not just with public speaking but in everyday life. I love her meditation approach. Helping you to learn the sensation in your body, making you aware of what is happening. Helping you calm your nerves before the spotlight. I lover her straight forward personality. She has been more than a pleasure to work with and I noticed a difference in the first day - I am some one who is terrified of public speaking and Jennie is helping me to press forward despite of what it looks/feels like, she is helping me to build confidence, helping me to be my true authentic self. She’s an encourager and a great coach! Thank you so much, Jennie and looking forward to our continued sessions. - Latoya Britt, Innovation Speaker
I signed up with Jennie for 8 sessions although I was a bit nervous since I a bit unfamiliar with public speaking at the time. But she made me feel very comfortable with her knowledge and kind attitude. And session after session I could see my own growth as Jennie helped address my concerns in all aspects of public speaking from the speaking voice to structure to story telling and everything in between. Most importantly she understands your vision to serve you the best on where you want to go and I find that very beneficial! I highly recommend her to everyone as well as share about her with my friends to let them know if they need a coach Jennie is the voice coach to go to! - Rav S. Rav Empowers Youtube
