Jena has empowered, inspired, and assisted hundreds of women, men, couples, teens, and families in their journey to receive healing, find purpose, balance, happiness, and wellness in their life, relationships, and business.
Jena started her journey into entrepreneurship as a healing facilitator and women’s empowerment coach. After building a successful business (Blissfully Empowered) and simultaneously a non-profit organization (Sisterhood Connections) and after leaving her twenty-two year corporate career, her family made a radical life change moving from Idaho to Texas. After a few rocky years, she made the decision to dissolve the non-profit and re-build her business. Jena renewed her promise to Christ, and got re-baptized in early 2019, which inspired an unexpected shift in what she is passionate about sharing with the world.
Today she is currently partnering with new and upcoming best-selling authors in her new Anthology series called ‘Soul Stories’, which the first book of the series 'Soulfood and Grace' set to be published by Balboa/Hayhouse in 2020. Jena also enjoys creating online programs and courses to help individuals discover their spiritual gifts & purpose, and discover who God created them to be while sharing their soul stories with the world.
Jena is happily married with a 29-year-old son, 27-year-old daughter, and an 9-year-old son. In between her already busy life she also works part time at Louisiana State University, at the Research Lab, and volunteers for projects in Baton Rouge, including assisting the Dow Westside YMCA with their teen camp, and empowerment programs.
Jena inspired a new project called The Happiness YOUniverse, that was created to guide and positively impact lives by providing support and guidance for people to connect to their happy life. This is done by creating a sacred space for connection, healing, and authenticity to be experienced. It’s our inspiration at The Happy YOUniverse to help YOU make your best of today your worst of tomorrow!
