“Jennifer has designed and implemented exercise programs to meet the needs of all levels. She has done a great job of keeping us fit and healthy. THANKS!!”


“When I began my coaching with Jeni, I was overweight with body aches and super stressed out. She helped me with food strategies, daily routines, and staying in tune with my body’s way of communicating. I am now 20 lbs lighter and keeping it off, feeling so much better, and confident that I can stay healthy despite my busy schedule. Thank you!”



“When I first met Jeni, I was so stressed out, having a hard time adjusting to my new neighborhood, and was tired and achy. Jeni helped me with an easy exercise routine, encouraged me to try new things, and provided very helpful fall prevention and stability techniques when I am dizzy. I am now enjoying a leadership role in my community, a flexible and less stressed body, and the skills to stay safe and vertical. ”


“On our bus trip to New Mexico, we watched your exercise video. We had hilarious fun stretching our limbs in the constricted space of the seats on the bus. Thank you (from all of us) for making this helpful tool for us while on vacation.”

Speaking Inquiries

Jeni is  part of the Speaker's Bureau for the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrator and can schedule a book reading, signing, and educational community conversation with an interested school, place of worship, or educational organization.

Jeni has a heart for others and creating this book is only her beginning for supporting positive change in our world, one conversation at time, one person at a time, and one book at a time.

Jeni is currently scheduling times for one of the two below topics:


Kind Words: "Connecting Communities with Conversation"

Provides an age-appropriate interactive community style conversation about healthy relationships within peer groups, community, and at home. The earlier we can teach healthy communication skills and confident boundary identification, the sooner we can create safe, happy, healthy relationships reducing and preventing family, domestic, and dating violence.

Kind Words: The Glue That Helps Keep Us Together

Is a children's picture book released May 2019 that gently introduces different communication styles and how sometimes mean talk happens at home and that it is not their fault, nor are they alone, if they find themselves in an unsafe situation. This book was created for the earliest reader but can easily provide a segue for deeper conversations with teens and young adults.
