While Jennifer’s school years were marked by popularity and academic success, life took an unexpected turn during her senior year of high school when her parents went through a divorce. This jarring experience shattered the protective bubble she had known, forcing her to confront the harsh realities of life outside her comfort zone. In an act of rebellion against her mother, she found herself entangled in a relationship with a charismatic but ultimately toxic individual. What began as a promising future, with academic honors and a full scholarship, swiftly transformed into a tumultuous and abusive marriage that threatened her very existence.

Every woman has a story, and this one is mine.
When I was in my 20’s, I found myself engulfed in a volatile marriage marked by mental, emotional, and physical abuse. The relationship finally imploded, thankfully, after years of violence that left me broken and my abuser imprisoned. At the time, I had no job, no child support, and meager resources to keep my family afloat. I did not know who to turn to for guidance or how to pick up the pieces of my life. I felt completely lost and isolated.
That was over 20 years ago now! As painful as those dark days were, my divorce ultimately saved my life in more ways than one. As I continued my journey to heal and find purpose, I felt led to help other women; a way to take my “mess” and make it my “message.” I wanted to become for other women the person I desperately needed but could not find. My experiences helped me turn my wounds to wisdom; I remain determined to help other women transition from trauma to triumph.
Through my work with my financial consulting and coaching firm, I have been able to help hundreds of individuals manage their toughest seasons victoriously, such as their divorce, loss of a loved one, and career transitions. I help women find their financial confidence, reclaim their power, and embrace a life of prosperity.
I thought that was it. That was my triumph over trauma, but life always has other plans while we’re busy making our own. I would soon find out that this was only training for what would happen next.
It didn’t seem real…
I couldn’t wrap my head around what was happening. I felt alone, scared, uncertain, and completely helpless.
Sleeping was out of the question. As I lay there, I could feel myself losing feeling in my body. I wanted to scream; I wanted to throw things; I wanted to cry; but I couldn’t do anything. Then came the pain.
The pain that comes along with GBS is indescribable. I couldn’t sleep; I couldn’t move; I couldn’t get comfortable. As the nerves began to heal from the treatment, I felt like someone was continuously shocking me from my head to my toes.
But then the head neurologist came in and stood at the end of my bed and told me that, although he felt optimistic about my recovery, they were projecting about a 90% return to who I was before – and that it would take time. A long time…
With limited mobility from the waist down, I couldn’t feel my arms, hands, entire torso – front or back – and my face was still partially paralyzed. I was unable to dress or wash myself and had to depend on my husband, the nurses, and the therapists for everything.
I entered rehab and worked every day to relearn how to write, walk, dress myself, feed myself, and more. Finally, I came home but had to rely on my husband for nearly everything. I prayed every day that I’d soon be able to walk again.
