About us

Having lived and worked in the US, Germany, France, and South and SE Asia, I've been exploring the intersections of human-centered design, social innovation, education, and individual and institutional transformation. I started Thriving in a Noisy World to explore practices, habits, tools, and community for thriving and leading in an age of distraction and noise. Most recently, I led Changemaker Campus Selection, supporting and equipping intrapreneurial educators and their teams at universities globally to embed social innovation into their culture, programming and operations. I helped launch Designing for Social Innovation and Leadership (DSIL), a field-based executive education course in Southeast Asia. I also worked as a project strategist fellow with 17 Triggers, a mix between a marketing agency, design studio, and development consultancy in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. I designed and led a new storytelling initiative at Ashoka Changemakers in DC and worked with Ashoka Germany and Ashoka Globalizer in Berlin, Germany. At Dartmouth, I researched the cross-cultural translation of human-centered design for my anthropology thesis involving fieldwork with four non-profits and social enterprises in the US, Myanmar, Nepal, and Cambodia. I graduated summa cum laude from Dartmouth with a BA in Anthropology modified with Economics and Development Studies. I'm a StartingBloc Fellow and member of Sandbox, a global network of young changemakers. Ever-curious, I'm committed to creating space for authentic human connection, practicing meditation, yoga and Pilates, and living the big questions.

To feed my soul so that I may return to my students with more inspiration and love to share! Jennifer
 

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
