Consultant, Trainer, Coach
I have 20 years experience working alongside executives and if I have learned anything, I’ve learned that they are just people. Success and failure goes hand in hand and we have all experienced both— so the only thing that really sets us apart is how hard we are willing to work and how far we are willing to go to take a real look at ourselves and what makes each and every one of us great.
Someone once asked me if I got nervous standing in front of groups of people to lead training and the answer is No. If I was there to have everyone looking at me and if I wanted to be the subject, then yes, I’d be terrified. But I’m not there for me. I don’t even see myself on stage. I am there to deliver a message, train on a topic I’m passionate about, and make sure that everyone in the room has a chance to share and be heard. That to me is facilitation and I absolutely love to facilitate! JenPorcher.com
Here is a little collage of my loves
Sean and I have raised 3 beautiful children and now we get to have the absolute joy of loving our granddaughter.
These peeps make me laugh, cry, scream, and drink. And I love it all.
I think we all know that life is never easy and every day we find ourselves dealing with a new crisis, but if I can remember that none of it matters the way my family does, then I do okay.
I can even say that now with my children being young adults, they have become my support system too. They give me perspective and remind me of the things I once taught them. I love it, I value it, and I need it!
And then there’s Lily...
If you’ve followed our podcast you’d know that Lolli will only be friends with animal lovers.
Check! No problem there.
I remember being a teenage girl and telling my dad that I wanted a Rabbit. My mother overheard the conversation and yelled out, “we don’t need anymore animals”.
My father and I just broke out in laughter because this was the first time I was asking for something other than an animal. I wanted a VW!
Finally…food and fitness.
I live to move. I love dancing, running, being at the beach, hiking a mountain, venturing with friends and being outdoors.
The best part of the day is a crisp quiet morning with an early sunrise. If I play my cards right, I’m either going for a trail run, bouncing on my rebounder, or taking Lily to the beach. Any day that begins with exercise is going to be a good day!
I’ve also come to understand my body and how it responds to food. I definitely still struggle with eating to manage emotions, but I remind myself that food is for energy and nourishment and that the more beautiful the colors, the more plentiful the vitamins. This perspective shift motivates me and excites me to eat the right foods for my body.
