    MY STORY

    My name is Jen James. I want to invite you on a journey of discovery, circumstance, and gratitude. The last 20+ years I’ve spent developing my career in the corporate world. More recently I transitioned to work as a Consultant as I focused on growing Double J Lifestyle.  I have been building, evolving, and running  teams for Fortune 500 companies. I moonlight as an award winning film and television producer in partnership with my hubby, Courtney, producing content out of our company, Admit One Productions. We are passionate storytellers and content creators.  We’ve created everything from documentary features, web series, music videos and corporate videos. I am a certified Mindful Practitioner coach, lean six sigma, yoga instructor, and now back in school for my Mindful Self-Compassion Teaching certifications. I live a healthy lifestyle and have a big passion for running, I’m even crazy enough to have run a marathon.. I’m a firm believer in nurturing your body, mind, and spirit to live a mindful, purposeful, and connected life. I’ve dedicated myself to “Living the change” a philosophy and coaching strategy I’ve created to help entrepreneurs and businesses manage change and find purpose in a mindful way.  Courtney and I have cultivated The Art of Mindful Storytelling as part of our philosophy to help entrepreneurs and business owners build confidence and create impact through storytelling.  I’m really excited to pass along the knowledge I’ve learned and guide people on their journey.

    I accelerated my leadership skills development under Jennifer’s mentorship which led to my recent promotion. Her uncanny ability to hone into who I am, assess what I need, help me see what I excel at and where my blind spots are is invaluable to me. She helped me find my courage to change where I needed to and celebrate achievements which motivated me to keep growing, even in the face of adversity. I’d highly recommend Jennifer to any organization looking to effect transformational change in their people and operations.
