Raw, personal, soul-tugging messages that are relevant and timeless. I have had the incredible fortune of working with Jennifer and hearing her speak on multiple occasions.

"The Whole Package!" Jennifer is one of the most professional, inspirational, resilient, and motivated people I know. It is one thing to be a motivational speaker, but Jennifer is also an inspirational speaker, delivering a powerful and passionate message while sharing her personal story and experiences.

I’ve been lucky enough to hear Jennifer share her insights, stories, and wisdom; not just once but on many occasions. Every time I listen to her speak, I’m uplifted and feel empowered to be the best version of myself. And that’s because Jennifer is such a powerful speaker – both in what she says and how she says it. She speaks from the heart and through her life stories, she helps the audience connect to their own strength and resilience. Jennifer is one of the rare speakers who is willing to be totally real with the audience and that makes her message stay with you long after her talk ends!

Jennifer Ballou has a story to tell. It is compelling, it is personal and it is real. I truly believe her story of great tragedy and personal loss, recovery and ultimately triumph over almost impossible odds is one that we can all learn from and grow. I highly encourage you to invite her to come speak to your organization. You will leave inspired!
