Conservation and environmental protection are threads that run through Jennifer’s life. As a child, she played in the creek behind her home, catching crawdads and other critters. That love of nature led to an undergraduate degree in biology and then a law degree to practice environmental law. She practiced for 16 years with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency before leaving in 2019 to pursue her entrepreneurial interests as a leadership and well-being coach. As a coach, Jennifer incorporates nature into her coaching practice by taking clients outdoors, often on hikes in nature. She lives in Lynchburg with her husband, two children, a dog, a rabbit, and lots of houseplants. She loves hiking, mountain biking and traveling. She has a master’s degree in leadership in global sustainability, a J.D. from the University of Kentucky and a B.A. in biology from the University of Louisville.
