Jenny comes from humble beginnings, starting life in a council estate in North West London, brought up by a teenage Mum with the odds stacked against them. She left school at 18 with A Levels, I wanted to go to art school but couldn’t get a funding so entered the workplace. She is a determined person committed to learning, and so went on to continue her studies part-time in the evening, alongside work and later work and family. She now has a BA (Hons) in Business, PG Cert in Coaching and MA In Management Learning & Leadership.
She worked in Retail and then Marketing, holding down full time roles alongside a weekend job for 5 years, as well as studying to achieve her career goals and buy her first flat. Eventually working her way up to Director of Marketing & Communication at a leading Business School. After discovering coaching, she went down to part-time in her role and started to build her business.
