life & leadership coach



Jennifer Askey, Ph.D.

I used to be a professor, until one day I moved to a different country and gave up my career. I had to figure out “what next?”

I have devoted the last ten years to learning all I can about positive psychology, emotional intelligence, the growth mindset, and mindfulness, so that I can help others do the same, and build a rewarding career in the process.

"Professional, personal, caring, and focused. This was an initial call, but I got a really good idea of who Jennifer is as a coach, how she approaches coaching, and what I could expect from working with her. Exceptionally helpful and insightful. I can see that she balances the nuts and bolts advice of how to get the work done with more holistic concern for clients as "whole" people."

Meghan Kessler

“I developed a model program in my area that won national awards. The program was closed and I spent a decade trying to scale up unsuccessfully. Jennifer helped me see differently about the possibilities before me and the connections between other projects of mine. I have a greater understanding of this work within the broader context, greater satisfaction in my work, and more hope that I will be able to succeed in pursuing my life goals."
