Nice to meet you!
I’m Jen, a wellness focused Career Coach, Fortune 500 Recruitment Director, and Founder of She Takes Five — a lifestyle blog helping women to live balanced, fulfilling lives. I cover topics across wellness, travel, career, and more. I like to keep things simple and attainable.
In my late-twenties, I drastically changed how I lived my life. The “work hard, play harder” approach was no longer sustainable and left me in poor health and on an unfulfilling path. At 25, I was diagnosed with Lyme Disease and other related ailments while simultaneously working in an exhausting, toxic work environment. After years of pushing myself to “power-through” I was left mentally and physically depleted. I was unhappy, unwell, and unfulfilled. Thankfully with the help of integrative medicine doctors, self-education, career, and lifestyle changes I was able to regain my health and create balance.
I’m a remote recruiting director in the media and entertainment industry. Thanks to no commute, I also have time to write and grow this site. Creating balance has been instrumental in my overall health and happiness.Through the blog, I hope to provide inspiration to enhance your life and well-being. From supplement recommendations and career advice, to simple GF recipes, and vacation inspo — we got you covered.
Stop by whenever you need to take five.
