What others are saying?
We absolutely loved having Jenn speak to the leadership team of the Yale LGBTQ Affinity Group, and she was a phenomenal resource of information. She asked the right questions that not only engaged the leadership team, but she also drew out our reasons for being involved, which helped to create a stronger leadership team. Jenn’s presentation was the perfect addition to our leadership retreat and made the event a true success!”– Yale University
“Thank you so much! You are a gifted storyteller– funny, sharp and bright– and the whole audience was with you throughout your program. We really appreciated having you here, and hearing your engaging, perceptive talk. Since last night, I’ve been mulling over jokes, stereotypes and things I’ve not been aware of before. As a straight ally, a mother and sister-in-law to queer/ gay people whom I love dearly, there is always plenty more to learn.”– Debby H., Non-Profit Director

I bought copies of her book which are now resources for me as I join the NGLCC, a recommendation I acted on immediately.”– Jane P., Author, Coach and Speaker“
