Hi, I’m Jen!
Our Mother + Founder
I am passionate about helping women discover their and. I am a mother and the founder of Mother + Founder Co. For the last 8 years I have been working with executive leadership teams to improve team performance and develop strategies to grow their businesses. I have had the pleasure to work with hundreds of teams and organizations. In 2020, I was honored as the Business Woman of the Year by the Tempe Chamber of Commerce.
I am the proud mama to three amazing kiddos including one kid on the Autism Spectrum (shout out to all the special needs mama’s – I see you!). I am married to an amazing man who is my rock and calm inside the beautiful chaos that is life. We live in beautiful Gilbert, Arizona. In my spare time (ha) I co-own a boutique mini- doughnut business with my father-in-law. Yes, there are doughnuts at our in-person sessions!
I understand first hand the journey many professional moms experience as they transition into the world of motherhood and beyond. I found myself struggling with my own sense of self each time the newborn fog wore off. I was now responsible for another tiny being who needed me literally for their survival. Meanwhile, I also felt compelled to figure out who the new me was. Yes, I am mom but I am also Jen. I just wasn’t sure who this new exhausted version of Jen was. I knew that there is a way to be mom AND something else. I also knew there had to be a more sustainable way to do it. An approach that didn’t leave me feeling like I had to be everything to everyone leaving me depleted. Slowly, over time I began to find ways to build a life well loved that is allowing me to be and create and also be the mother I want to be. I am so excited to share what I have learned with other women who are looking for their and or trying to find ways to balance all the things a bit better.
