TK: What inspires you?
JEN: The things that inspire me… my family, my friends, my wonderful husband and my world-changing daughter. I am inspired by my community and selfless acts displayed by others that fuel its momentum. I am inspired by our Mayor, her poise, her intelligence and along with her, the other female leaders that came before and who’s shoulders we stand on today. Most of all, I am inspired by the change I can create that intentionally, optimistically, and graciously, impacts the future for all of us for the better.
TK: What advice do you have for others?
JEN: There are no failures, only data. Step outside the immediate issue… that’s not what’s wrong. Manage the “why” and the next steps will be right in front of you. But whatever you do to manage life’s changes… be earnest. Be vulnerable. Be authentic.
TK: What is the greatest lesson you have learned on your journey?
JEN: Sometimes the bravest and most important thing you can do is just show up. – Brene Brown
The YWCA is on a mission to empower women at all stages in their careers. Diversity in leadership is particularly vital to our vibrant business community in the Greater Topeka Area.
The YWCA is celebrating 31 years of recognizing Women of Excellence in our community with the theme “Dare to be Powerful.” We dare to be powerful, despite whatever obstacles may present themselves along the way.
“When I dare to be powerful, to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid.”
