Born in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont, I grew up camping, launching my bike off plywood jumps in the front yard, and playing late night games of kick the can. I was a dancer, a saxophone player, and a complete nerd.

From my earliest memories, I recognize that I have always been an adventurer at heart: always eager to learn and to experience new places, people, and things. As a kid, I looked towards the world with wide eyes yearning to explore its endless possibilities.

My high school Latin teacher told me I was a 'modern day renaissance woman'. At that time, I can't say that I really understood the overwhelming compliment that had been bestowed on me. Now however, I recognize my expansive list of passions as a strength.  I honor her words and draw strength from them in the pursuit of my own wild adventurous life.

Sometimes even with the greatest of intentions, we find ourselves going down a path that we hadn't quite imagined.


After college I was caught up in the pursuit of success and financial independence in the only way I knew how: throwing (insert losing) myself into my corporate career. Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't trade these experiences for anything. I worked with amazing people, traveled around the country and around the globe, and was actually very successful considering the overwhelming obstacles that I faced. But after more than 15 years of what felt like pushing boulders up mountains, I was physically sick, emotionally exhausted, disconnected from any sense of personal passion or purpose, and completely unfulfilled. I can confidently say I really wasn't showing up for any portion of my life.

Finally the universe decided it was time to make a change.


Circling the drain of uncertainty and fear, it became clear that I wasn't living in a way that felt in alignment with my soul and after many (MANY!) personal pep talks I decided to take massive action. I changed my relationship to food. I became a certified yoga teacher and holistic health coach. I took back control of every aspect of my life. I simplified everything. I decluttered my closets, my refrigerator and most importantly, my mind.  It was here that I felt a level of fire and connectedness that I had only experienced on the summit of a mountain. Freedom. Love. Energy. Passion. Courage.

It was from that place that I shifted my perspective. Why can't I approach my whole life with the clarity and space that I experience when I'm in nature?

Freedom comes from seeing adventure is in everything.


I now live my life on my terms. Collaboration, connection, and contribution are at the core of everything that I do. I want to team up with people with big dreams, even bigger hearts, and ideas that positively impact people's lives.

My companies, Wild Adventurous Life and LANEY & LU, have sparked the 'Live Vibrantly Movement' inspiring thousands to live a more joyful, meaningful life. 

I'm so thankful that you've stopped by to learn more about me and my personal passion & purpose. The universe has guided us together and I'm truly honored!

Live Vibrantly,
Jen
