Hi, I’m Jenny!
Normally I would write in the third-person to tell you about how ahhh-mazing I am, and why super fancy people hire me for uber-awesome undertakings. But you know what?
Work schmerk. Let’s start with the fun stuff, shall we?
I’m a 32-year-old Silicon Valley bred career and business strategist living in the Big Apple; a world traveler not to be mistaken with a backpacker (as I most certainly cannot be relied upon to pack lightly); a yoga lover and gadget fanatic.
An eternal bookworm and quote junkie, I am always on the lookout for just the right book “prescription” for whatever might be standing in your way (or mine). When I’m not buried in a book, magazine, newspaper, moleskine notebook or gadget, you will find me walking through the streets of Manhattan with a rockin’ soundtrack playing, imagining I’m the lead in a movie called “New York City, Starring Jenny Blake.” I know . . . it’s ridiculous.
I love staying active—yoga, pilates, walking and dancing keep me grounded, strong, happy and sane—but not without an ulterior motive: to work off at least one delicious multi-course meal I delight in on weekends. Finally, I am a shamelessly gooey romantic—I love asking people how they met their significant other; watching their smile widen and their eyes sparkle as they tell their story. It is priceless…and contagious. Try this sometime.

She’s whip smart, full of authentic warmth and an incredibly talented teacher, mentor and coach. I’m grateful she’s in my life.”

“Jenny has a sense of peace and ease about her that allows her to really listen and hear both what is said and what isn’t said. This combination is extremely critical when you’re seeking a sounding board, an insightful perspective, and advice that is spot-on and illuminates the blind spots you can’t see, but need to!”
