Nice to meet you! I'm Jewell!
I'm a travel-loving, kolache-eating, wife and momma who's on a mission to help people be the most confident versions of themselves so they can have more happiness, fulfillment, and success.
A native Michigander, I went to college at the United States Military Academy at West Point, and spent 14 years as an Active Duty Army Officer (I'm now in the Reserves).
The moment my daughter was born, I realized it was time for a change in my life. Fast forward a few years and a lot of self-discovery and work on my own confidence, and I'm now a bestselling author, speaker, and consultant.
- Certified Canfield Trainer in the Success Principles

Other Fun Facts:
I'm a reiki master, tapping practitioner, and energy worker.
I've lost track of how many times I've watched the ENTIRE Parks and Recreation TV series.
Books I love: The Light in the Attic, Where the Sidewalk Ends, The Sun Also Rises, Happy for No Reason.
I love baking cakes. They're typically delicious, if not exactly... well, Pinterest-worthy. ;)
My Values & Beliefs
Time is our most precious resource
Money is great! Travel to exotic places is amazing. Creature comforts are wonderful. Time? Ah, time is that most precious gift that we get to invest however we please. The only catch is that we only get it once - no takesie-backsies. We’ve all heard that saying that no one ever wishes they would have stayed at work longer when they’re on their deathbed.
I want to make the most of my time here with the people I love. I want to use it living as MYSELF, not some inauthentic version of what I or someone else thinks I "should" be.
And I want to help other people do the same for themselves.
I believe that it's possible to love and accept ourselves for who we are, even before we've reached our goals.
I believe that when we do, we're able to take bold action, let go of the junk that doesn't matter, and create better lives for ourselves and the people we impact.
Happiness is the goal
Everyone deserves to be happy. Yep. Everyone. YOU get a happy! YOU get a happy! And YOU get a happy!
Did you know that the 2017 Harris Poll showed that only 33% of Americans polled said they were happy? What the heck?!
You know what happy people do? They feel good. They have time and energy to create amazing memories with their families. They can enjoy the little moments more. They see opportunities and take chances.
Plus, science shows that happier people are more successful (it’s not the other way around, like you might expect). And one of the best ways to be happy is to confidently own how great you are. Own your Worth. Do More Joy!
You get to decide what success means to you
Is it getting promoted to the top? Is it not going after the top jobs because other things are more important?
You know your self-worth isn’t determined by your title or other people’s expectations, so you’re free to create a life that genuinely feels good to you. So whether winning in life includes a power suit and heels, or flip flops and leggings, have at it!
Take a cue from my boy Shakespeare and to thine own self be true, yo. (Wow that was so cheesy. But I think I’m going to leave it there. And yes, there's more where that came from.)
Spirituality isn’t just for cross-legged yogis on mountaintops
Chakras and reiki and tapping, oh my!
Our spiritual tools are just as important as our structural tools. So many times we’re holding onto gunk from our past that keeps us stuck and keep us small. And a lot of times, we don’t even know what’s there - we just know that something is off.
Luckily for us, there are plenty of ways to reclaim, let go, and rebalance those things that have us energetically out of whack.
Even folks who don’t know a meridian from a mandarin can use this in their lives. It’s spirituality for real people - quick, simple, and freaking powerful.
You might be wondering….
What makes you so special? How do you know how to help me?
Well, for starters, my mom always tells me I’m special. Har har har…
But for real - I use a combination of energy work and practical tools that I’ve learned from spiritual teachers, internationally-recognized coaching certification programs, and my years as an Army Officer (4 years West Point, 14 years Active Duty, and 2 years and counting as a Reservist).
I’m also a bestselling author, professional speaker, wife and momma who understands what it's like to overcome self-confidence issues.
What exactly do you do?
I use coaching, energy clearing, tapping, and teaching to make lasting changes in your life.
“Wait, what’s tapping?” you ask? Well, it’s an amazing acupressure technique that helps you do things like get rid of overwhelm and stress, let go of guilt so you can focus on doing your job and getting stuff done, and break through all sorts of things that are keeping you stuck in a rut.
This sounds like just what I need. Where do we go from here?
Yay! I’m SO glad you asked! I’d love for us to get to know each other better. Although I hop on social media once or twice a week, the best way to stay in touch is to sign up below to receive my emailed gems of goodness.
