Meet the Founder

Jen is a skillful Executive Coach, Speaker, and Author. As CEO of Grow Collective, she leads the charge creating content and coaching leaders and teams. Her Grow Effect Model leverages both positive psychology and neuroscience to unlock one's ability to grow and thrive. Through intuitive brain-based coaching, strategic thinking, and authentic communication Jen brings a unique ability to think like a coach, a business, and a brand.

After spending 15 years as a leader in the advertising industry, Jen began coaching on her own in 2012 when she launched ostrich coaching + consulting focused on developing female leaders in advertising. In 2016, she co-created and launched the Shift Positive® Method, a revolutionary approach to feedback grounded in Positive Psychology + Allyship making it highly effective. She co-authored the book, Feedback Reimagined, to help organizations change the feedback experience for all generations in the workplace. Jen has experience working in both large and small organizations coaching up and coming Directors, VPs, and C-Suite Executives. Her prerequisite is a culture that supports growing and thriving together.

In 2021, Jen was named one of the Top 20 Coaches in Austin, TX by Influence Digest. Jen was trained at the prestigious Hudson Institute in 2012 and today is a Professional Certified Coach (PCC) through the International Coach Federation (ICF). Since 2017 she's been an active certified practitioner and huge believer in the Integrative9 Enneagram given the significant level of self-awareness and growth she's witnessed across her coaching clients. Additionally, she is a graduate of the School of Communications at the Pennsylvania State University with a BA in Advertising/PR and a Minor in Business. In her free time, she can be found at a 5:30am CrossFit class or eating her way through Austin with her outrageously handsome Vizsla/Lab mix, Koko.
