Welcome to She Takes Five!

Hello, I’m Jen: Mother, Fortune 500 Recruitment Director, Lifestyle Blogger, and Career Coach. In 2019, I created She Takes Five to share my healthy lifestyle explorations. Over 10 years ago, I was living a fast-paced life in NYC when I experienced chronic illness and corporate burnout simultaneously. I was 26 and didn’t put a lot of thought into properly taking care of myself or creating balance. Thankfully, with the help of integrative doctors, and self-education I was able to regain my health.

Since then, I’ve made it my mission to slow down and live more purposely. Today I’ve built a life that allows me to balance motherhood and my career dreams. It’s not always perfect but over the years I’ve made powerful shifts in how I live my life and learned how to incorporate sustainable healthy habits into my daily routine.

Through the blog, I share practical wellness and lifestyle content plus tips from our community features. Lastly, I regularly run coaching programs to help women pivot their careers to achieve more fulfilling, balanced lives.

Thank you so much for stopping by! My favorite part of blogging is the community of health-conscious women I’ve had to pleasure to connect with. Don’t forget to subscribe and connect!

In good health,
