About the Author
Jennifer Lee, PhD, a graduate of Columbia University, is a clinical psychologist in private practice specializing in mindfulness-based treatments for mood and anxiety disorders. She also serves as adjunct instructor at Marist College in Poughkeepsie, NY, where she teaches graduate students in mental health counseling. Lee has published articles and chapters on mindfulness and child and adolescent mental health.
Right-brain entrepreneur Jennifer Lee is a certified coach, writer, artist, yogini, and the founder of Artizen Coaching. Before pursuing her own passions full-time, she consulted for ten years for companies such as Gap Inc., Accenture, Sony, and HP, helping leaders and organizations manage change. As a director of executive development for Gap Inc., she led onboarding and coaching programs for those at the level of vice president and up. She grew her private coaching business in her spare time, and in 2006 Jennifer made the leap from corporate America to entrepreneurship after realizing she needed to stop living her own dream on the side. Now she is on a mission to empower people to awaken their innate creativity and make a living doing what they love. When she's not coaching, writing, or leading groups, she's either painting up a storm, reading in her hammock, practicing yoga, making arts and crafts, or indulging in a midday nap (one of the fabulous perks of being self-employed). Jennifer holds a bachelor's degree in communication studies from UCLA and a master's degree in communication management from USC. She lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her creative, rather left-brain husband and their adorable beagle mix.
