Busy working away on an art drawing, a friend asked Jennel unexpectedly for art lessons.
“So I went for it!” Jennel tells me on a sunny San Francisco afternoon. “I had no idea I could inspire or even offer her art lessons.”
What started as a conversation about design and content strategy for web, email, and digital products, turned into the most lovely reminder about unlocking one’s creativity.
“I’m helping my student reach her goals and unlock her creativity, and it’s amazing!”
Jennel has been fascinated with the power of creativity for quite some time. By day, she is a content strategist and communications guru at an environmental, education, and health-focused management consulting firm, ICF International.
To fuel her creativity and stay fulfilled in her career, she focuses on her best creative-self.
“Moments of synchronicity can come anytime.” She cautions, “But you don’t have to share everything with everyone, immediately. Protect your creative-self, and don’t let the critics beat you down.”
