We would highly recommend Jennifer Blankl!”

“You did a fantastic job yesterday – thank you so much for your presentation. It was totally relevant and you offered practical tools that can be used right now.”
“Jen and I would like to thank you for all you’ve done these last 9 months working with Reside! It was a valuable experience for all of us. Through this process with you, we’ve identified areas that needed addressing as well as new ideas for future growth and improvement. You have given us the skills to become better leaders which in turn will help us deliver better care to the individuals we support. You have effectively inspired us all to continue to better ourselves at what we do. Again, thank you for all the support you’ve provided to everyone in our agency. Your direction has definitely touched each and every one of our managers and has trickled down to our Direct Service Providers and the clients we support. We’ve appreciated the connections you’ve helped us make and the insights that have surfaced as a result. We appreciate you immensely. Thank you for everything Jennifer!”

“Thank you so much for the fantastic luncheon topic “The Gift in Conflict” at March’s Tualatin Chamber’s WIN (Women In Networking) event.

“Speaking openly and honestly about struggles in marriage can be difficult, especially amongst a group of young mothers that might not know one another very well…that is why when Jennifer Blankl came to our MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) group to facilitate a discussion about marriage and relationships, I was so blown away with how comfortable everyone in the group was with getting vulnerable with one another around this topic. Jennifer set the stage for our discussion beautifully with her own raw experiences and deep knowledge and understanding of the nature of human relationships. From there, the discussion flowed naturally and felt intimate, even though there were four full tables of women. I know that all of us walked away from that short session with tools we could immediately implement in our own marriages and even in other relationships with loved ones. We would have Jennifer back to our group in a heartbeat and would highly recommend other groups to consider her as a facilitator or speaker.”
-Emily Guerrero, MOPS SouthLake
“Thank you, Jennifer! You are a Master Relationship Coach! I have learned some easy and effective ways to improve my communication. I am much better about having conversations that would have been difficult before. Even my daughter said I was communicating better. I have seen such positive results by just doing a few simple things. Life is better.”
-Conde Bartlett, Cocoon Wellness Center, Portland, OR
“Thank you Jennifer for your fun and interactive workshop for Metropolitan Senior Networking. Your tips and illustrations on how to communicate, and adjust one’s perspective is a priceless life tip – valuable in our professional lives as well as personal relationships. The comments from the participants are still rolling in, on how helpful they are, and the way you tied it into the challenges of the pandemic were very timely.”
-Jenn Buman, MSN Program
Director & Owner of Portland Senior Housing
“Thank you so much for spending your Sunday morning with us! It’s clear that the Board Members really got something out of it! Throughout the rest of the day as we were talking about planning etc. there were several mentions of our essential needs and how that affects our focus and motivation. And honestly, the fact that so many of the Board members had (the need for) growth really helped me understand their perspective as it relates to my need for certainty. I often find myself struggling with a focus on growth because I read the energy around growth as “growth at any cost” – which is not my cup of tea (ha!). Ultimately, I understand now the balance we have is really a benefit and can actually lead to thoughtful, strategic growth where we are all pushed a bit. Thank you! The work we did with you is already having an impact.”
Executive Director, Kinship House
“Jennifer was incredibly responsive and thoughtful to our training request. She listened to the needs of our organization, made recommendations, and presented content that was relevant to our group. Jennifer created a training environment that was open to questions and sharing, and really allowed individuals to think about themselves in the content. It was a pleasure working with Jennifer.”

“Jennifer Blankl’s WORKSHOPS present valuable, thought provoking, information to help you get out of your rut and into your heart! The tools and challenges she presents empower you to try positive strategies in your relationships that will allow you to show up as your better you. You will be armed with new intention that allows you to connect with others in a more heart-centered way. I’m impressed with the honesty and vulnerability that comes out in Jennifer’s workshops. She is fun, supportive, honest, and nonjudgmental. I feel fortunate to be receiving this crucial, perhaps family saving, information right now and look forward to feeling more and more fulfillment in my relationships! Thank you Jennifer!”
