Meet your Mindful Leadership Coach
Hi, I’m Jennifer.
As founder of Pathways to Change, my own path to transformation began over two decades ago.
Like many who enter public service, I became a public interest lawyer because I wanted to help people. Though my heart was in the work, stress affected my thinking, my performance and my health.

Kind Words from Real Clients
“If everyone had a Jen, there’s no telling how amazing this world would be.”
Jen has a gift for asking questions that open me to creating entirely new neural connections—seeing, understanding, and thinking along new “paths.” Over and over again through working with Jen, I have experienced a wholeness that is difficult to describe, and it is one that I wish for all people.
Danielle Light, Community Director
“Jen has set me on a journey to improved personal and professional development.”
Jennifer’s approach to coaching focusing on neuroscience and the brain was highly effective. Introducing me to mindfulness and awareness and linking that to dealing with emotional stress was one element that was highly appreciated and is adding value to my daily life.
Ceridwen Johnson, Head of Governance and Membership, UNOPS
"Jennifer's approach engaging personal values, brain science, and non-judgmental self-awareness has been perfect for me."
She helped me find clarity in the direction that would bring me the most joy and be in the best interest of my team… Her coaching would be highly valuable for a leader at any level, particularly someone in a personal or professional transition, or feeling a lack of direction, agency, or connection to their work.
Sean Tennerson, Sr. Program Manager, REDF
“Working with Jennifer has been an invaluable experience.”
Through her coaching, I remembered values that are central to who I am as a person but which had fallen to the wayside. I learned to have greater self-compassion and now feel in tune with myself so that I do not fall back to old habits. I am now able to approach my career life with more presence, fun, energy, and excitement to take on my next endeavors.
Suzanne Le, Psychiatric Medical Assistant
“Jennifer's support continues to guide me through the challenges of leadership, diplomacy and coordination."
The great thing about Jennifer is that she doesn’t try to tell you where to go or what to do; rather she gives you the tools with which to find your own way… She empowers through her work, and thus leaves you strongly standing on your own feet.
Nathan Reyes, Head of Mission, International Committee of Red Cross
“Working with Jennifer has been a powerful experience that truly supported me in staying grounded while moving through a big transition…”
Kimberley Elliott, Leadership Wellness
“I have done a lot of work in many areas as a coach myself, but I felt real and substantial progress with Jen."
When I began working with Jen, I was looking for direction. She recognized that sometimes I needed to let go a bit in order to be open to the work to be done during our sessions. Her acknowledgements were powerful because they actually saw who I was and who I wanted to be. A weight has been lifted and I am on the right path!
