About Jake

When he was an undergraduate, Jake was determined to be the "all star" campus leader; working with determination to build a freakishly long resume of all of his leadership activities. He was president of his fraternity, served as president of the student senate, and held multiple jobs in various areas of the student life experience.


As an experienced career and leadership development professional, Jake now spends his time sharing his story with students and his community, helping them discover their leadership potential. It's his mission to help leaders redefine failure and understand how best to lead others.

Jake brings a balanced approach to his work, making sure to bring his sense of humor and straight forward attitude. Participants in Jake's programs learn to practice self-care, communicate effectively, and ultimately discover what it takes to be a great leader.

Mandy Balser, Board Member

I was worried this (Strategic Planning session) was going to be boring and fruitless, and instead it was fun and very insightful. It made me excited to be a part of the board and the organization moving forward. I feel like we have direction now and are really clear on what we need to do to get where we'd like to go. I think all organizations should do something like this, because it helps participants get to know each other and it creates unity toward a group mission.

Matt Smith, Board President

Jake is a really exceptional facilitator.  He brought everyone to the table easily and allowed for strong, honest communication.   I would absolutely (and already have!) recommend him to any organization that is serious about gaining focus and creating a plan for productive work for the future
