About Jen Ryan

Hey there! I’m Jen Ryan, founder, and author of Intentional Listening! I’m so excited to have you here!

What Qualifies Jen to Help You?

Picture of meI’ve worked in the helping professions (primarily as a social worker) for nearly a decade and graduated with my Masters in Social Work in 2019 – WOOHOO! 

During my internship for my master’s program, I trained as a Child and Family Therapist at a Community Mental Health agency and loved it! My education has set me up to give YOU the valuable information you need to create a life you love.

My personal experience includes 20 years of devouring self-development and wellness material. Seriously, I think I’ve read and listened to every podcast on the topics!

My love for all things self-development and wellness began when my dad bought me a Dr. Phil book when I was 19 years old. I read it and was hooked. Here I am two decades later with a self-development and wellness book collection big enough to be a public library!

I live in beautiful Seattle, WA with my toddler son and husband. There is something about living near the mountains that feels magical. We’ve lived in 5 different States but it feels like home here. Having the opportunity to move around has made me grow as a person. 

I’m currently at home with my son until he enters pre-school and I feel so fortunate to be here for every moment and milestone! Being at home with him has definitely given me a different perspective on life that I’m grateful for.
