Guest Speaker: Jenny Medrano
Jenny Medrano (she/they) is an experienced coach, consultant and facilitator within the arenas of lifestyle, liberation and DEI (diversity, equity, inclusion). With over a decade of experience, Jenny pulls from her background of education and DEI training to inform all of the coaching and consulting that she currently does. She spent the last decade serving within various nonprofits focused on empowering youth in their communities, most recently the nonprofit, Building Bridges. Within her time at BB, she was able to jumpstart the Adult training program that is focused on DEI and anti-oppression training and that now serves as the social enterprise branch of the nonprofit.
Currently, Jenny pours all of her passion and heart into her coaching business, in the form of 1:1 development, group facilitation and course creation focused on liberation. All of the curriculum and content she creates is done through a lens of DEI, while also making sure to account for accessibility, as well as emotional and cultural intelligence. Her coaching is trauma-informed and holistic in the form of mind, body and spiritual wellness.
Additionally, Jenny’s spirituality is the foundational factor that grounds all of the work she does in her business. As a Starseed and lightworker, she believes that her role as a human in the collective liberation process is fueled by a soul that has chosen this unique purpose. She strongly believes that everything happens for a reason and that there is energetic harmony and love within the universe that is supporting expanding liberation at every level of existence.
Jenny is driven by her vision of a collective humanity where individuals are able to create both a liberated lifestyle and new, liberating structures to live within.
