My vision is to help women who want to have it all, achieve their goals and be joyful in the process.
Hi, my name is Jennifer Ballou (previously Loredo) and I help professional women who juggle too much find balance and joy.
Originally from Mentor, Ohio, I am the oldest of six children. Taking care of and helping others has been an important part of my life for as long as I can remember. So much so that I have found it to be my calling. I am extremely proud to be doing so in the capacity of a leadership and wellness coach for a group of people that I feel extremely passionate about – professional, busy, exhausted and overwhelmed women. I am a Certified Professional Coach (CPC), an Energy Leadership Index Master Practitioner (ELI-MP), COR.E Dynamics Leadership Dynamics Specialist and COR.E Wellbeing Dynamics Specialist. My journey to get here started many years ago.
In 1994, at the age of 18, I enlisted in the United States Army and proudly served our country, retiring after serving for 21 years. It was while serving that I fell in love with the idea of living a joyful, balanced life but it was just that – an idea. And this idea came to me during a very challenging time in my life…
It was in 2010, at the age of 34, that I unexpectedly found myself a widow with two young children. Until this point, I was convinced I knew exactly which path I was on, both personally and professionally, but was quickly reminded that life is short, that there are many things we do not control and that we have to continue and never give-up, no matter what life brings our way. Over the next five years, I would learn many more life lessons while doing the difficult inner work on becoming a better version of me. I am proud to have served our country for 21 years, retiring in 2015.
I live a life full of joy and have learned to recognize what balance feels and looks like for me! I am also extremely grateful to be in love and recently married to a man that I respect and care about very much. Omari has shown me a love that is deep and meaningful, while encouraging me to be my best self. I also have two children, who mean the world to me – Alexis and Eddie. These relationships are a large part of what brings me happiness and I am dedicated to nurturing them with love, kindness and communication.
Throughout the years, one of my greatest joys in life has been to help others achieve their goals and become their best selves. Only when you become your best self can you release your true, unlimited potential. As a Life Coach, and as a person, this is my greatest mission. And so, I would like to welcome you to my professional website “A Joyful Life with Jennifer”. It is a playground of resources and tools assisting women like you, like us, who are here to serve a greater purpose, and live a truly joyful life.
I have a free gift for you!
