Jennifer Riggs, JD, CNTC
Jennifer helps professionals who serve others lead with greater focus, energy and impact. A former lawyer, Jennifer knows first-hand how external pressures can affect our thinking, behavior and well-being. When we’re stuck in survival mode, high-level thinking, decision-making, and growth become difficult.
A yoga practitioner since 1998 (yoga teacher for 7 years), and mindfulness meditator since 2011, Jennifer embraces a holistic approach to change.
In both her 1-on-1 coaching and her Pathways to Mindful Leadership program for organizations (aka Pathways to Change for United Way Bright Beginnings), Jennifer focuses on the whole person. Her framework integrates neuroscience, coaching, mindfulness and mind-body principles to support meaningful and lasting change and development from the inside out.
Additional credentials: Jennifer received her initial coach certification (CPCC) from the Coaches Training Institute. She is a credentialed member of the International Coaching Federation. She holds a BA in Philosophy and English from Tufts University and a law degree from Loyola University Chicago.
