Managing director of Thriving Parents

I’m Jenna Clarke – a quietly proud and shy introvert who now makes her living as a speaker, trainer and coach. This is proof that anything is possible.

I’m especially proud to be the managing director of Thriving Parents, designed to support parents manage a successful transition back to work after major life events, such as a baby.

As well, I’m a certified coach, facilitator, trainer, writer, mountain enthusiast and improviser. I’m also a Canadian, mom of two spirited toddlers, wife, sister, daughter, and friend. I previously worked as a national TV and radio journalist and communications manager for several international organizations over the past 20 years.  

It took a while, yet I eventually realized that the juggling of these – sometimes contradictory roles – is an asset, not a liability.

The exciting part of making various mistakes in all these roles has been discovering that my strength is working with individuals and teams in transitions. My passion is working with those who want to make sustainable and meaningful changes so they can live and work with more passion, fun, vision and purpose.

If you want to shake things up, move out of your comfort zone safely, I can help you get what you want in business, family and life without losing yourself in the process.
