Jenny started off from humble beginnings, growing up in a council estate in North West London to a teen Mum. She has been able to surpass expectations of her through tenacity, hard work and optimism.
Due to financial constraints, she studied 5 years part time while also working full time to achieve her business degree and then went on to complete a Masters degree part time while running her business and having a young daughter. Her husband has been an invaluable support and an unsung hero in her success. He has enabled her to shine and allowed their story to be shared in her book.
She hasn’t been afraid to be vulnerable. Sharing her experience of being a female breadwinner in her book and in the media has enabled other women to do the same and get an important topic discussed among women and men in order to improve things for everyone.
In 2006 Jenny founded her business, and now alongside her team works with individuals and organisations, supporting them to achieve career and life changing results. Using their unique combination of skills around gender balance, leadership, inclusion and self improvement to inspire and empower.
