Mission Statement: "To Create and Inspire Integrity"
Jolene (Jo) is honoring a deep desire to help others experience a more passionate life. After 25 years as a corporate warrior in the pharmaceutical industry, she felt a more compelling call emerge. Her training as a life coach, spiritual practitioner, and marathon team trainer, combined with years of motivating employees, has given her the skill and compassion to help others uncover their own true potential.
Growing up in an alcoholic family and later transcending relationships torn apart by addictive behavior, Jo personally understands how the human spirit can always rise up and start anew, free from past decisions. She has lived the mythical "Hero's Journey", much like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz, after a whirl-wind of changes transported her to Australia. There she discovered the capacity to create a life-long dream of living and working abroad, and the courage to create an amazing new life.
Based on extensive travel to many countries for business and pleasure, immersing herself in local cultures, and discovering delights "off the beaten trail", Jo uses adventure travel to facilitate new insights and personal growth. She has led groups to explore destinations as diverse as Monaco to the Australian Outback. Each encounter brings a deeper understanding of different cultures and new ways of connecting; but ultimately, adventure travel allows us to explore new paradigms for our own lives. From these expanded perspectives, the true self emerges.
