Coach, Facilitator, Founding Director
Known for her gentle humor and connected presence, Jenny helps clients to access their own embodied wisdom and power as they dance with life’s ebbs and flows. Trained as a via™ coach, Jenny’s coaching style also integrates somatic practices from yoga (RYT-200), dance, theatre, and the study of body language learned during three years spent caring for captive wolves and horses.
Jenny is practiced at guiding people through the challenges of living and working overseas and communicating across cultures. She holds a Master’s degree in Social Anthropology (SOAS University of London) and has worked for over a decade in global education in 20 different countries. A white, cis/straight, female-identified US citizen, Jenny is constantly unpacking her own “invisible knapsack” and examining how her many identities intersect with the systems and people she relates with. She is passionate about social and environmental justice and always ready to peel back another layer and learn something new.
Jenny’s areas of focus as a coach include female leadership, multicultural relationships and parenting, disrupting unconscious bias, cultural adjustment and re-entry, and life and job transitions. She lives in Dakar, Senegal with her husband and daughter and loves long walks on the beach and eating fresh fish with alloco (fried plantains) and atthieké (cassava couscous).
Coach, Facilitator, Consultant
A deep commitment to celebrating the diversity of human experience informs Briana’s work both in the U.S. and abroad. Trained as a Professional Integral Coach (a holistic and developmental approach), her coaching is also influenced by years of immersing herself in diverse worldviews around the globe. This has led her to explore modalities of leadership development through somatic practices, nature-connected inquiry, adult development, mindfulness, and, of course, cross-cultural communication and relationship building. Through this work, she remains committed to supporting others to step more fully into their own unique brilliance.
Today, she is actively involved in launching a non-profit called the Healing and Reconciliation Institute, which uses evidence-based reconciliation tools and practices to help heal racial and historical divides. She also works with the Dragons Fund, a non-profit initiative focused on improving diversity outcomes and access to the transformative opportunities possible through a global education.
