She Takes Five

a restorative wellness blog


If you’re in need of some major self-care inspo, you came to the right place.

I’m Jen, a wellness focused Career Coach, Fortune 500 Recruitment Director, and Founder of She Takes Five — an online platform helping women to prioritize their health and well-being. Through STF, I share content to recharge your life through wellness, balance tips, vacations, and more. I like to keep things simple but high-impact around here. 

My Story

In my mid-twenties, I was diagnosed with Lyme Disease and other related ailments while simultaneously working in an exhausting, toxic work environment. It was hard to keep up with the grueling hours, travel, and endless workload while managing often debilitating symptoms.

With no quick fix, I knew I needed to overhaul my fast-paced NYC life in order to heal. The “work hard, play harder” approach was no longer sustainable and left me in poor health and on an unfulfilling path. Thankfully with the help of integrative medicine doctors, self-education, career, and lifestyle changes I was able to regain my health and create space to support my dreams. 


My mission is to help women to build a health-centered life. I believe joy and success happen when we feel our best selves. As a working mother, I know how challenging that can feel at times. Through the blog, I’m constantly exploring high-quality, practical ways to seamlessly infuse healthy and restorative habits into each and every day. 

In addition to the blog, don’t miss our work-life balance Interview Series where women across different industries are sharing advice, tips, and their healthy go-to’s.

Lastly, I offer career coaching programs for anyone who wants to create more harmony between their work, health, and happiness. If coaching isn’t for you, you can start with my free e-book below: 6 Steps to Reinvent Your Career.

You can always count on me to provide you with the latest resources, and inspiration whenever you need to take five. 

With love,
