The Full Story

Jean is curious by nature and has a deep love of learning. She has spent years perfecting her coaching craft. She is a change agent by nature, so it’s no surprise that she continues her studies to stay up to date with neuroscience and coaching practices. She stays abreast of current practices by reading and learning from professors and researchers at Yale, Stanford, and Harvard to name a few. 


In 1980 Jean was on a career path that did not suit her at all. She picked up the book “What Color is your Parachute” that completely changed her way of thinking about work and began her journey into returning to school to complete a BS and MS degree focusing on coaching and wellbeing. The field of coaching and the term wellbeing had not even entered our lexicon, but Jean knew that there was something between tennis coaching and therapy that didn’t exist yet and although she didn’t have the word for it she wanted to study it; figure it out. She took courses, workshops and training in areas of sports psychology, counseling psychology, neuroscience, creativity, mindfulness, yoga, personal wellness, and other related fields to try and bring together and help create a new field.
