It’s 100% time to stop dreaming (or scrolling) about the life you want to be living and just get after it. In addition to being a professional coach and entrepreneur, I am a fellow life traveler, just like you! 

Since closing up the doors to my first entrepreneurial journey of fabric and fringe (BAGOLITAS), I had been searching for my “something more.” I knew that I was a highly capable woman who was made for more. I was grateful for the time at home with my family, but I couldn’t shake the feeling of time ticking and a nagging thought, “Is this it? I feel like I have something more in me to give back to this world.” 

I was tired of feeling listless and bored, wanting more, but banking on tomorrow. So I did something about it, and on that journey, I discovered The Adult Chair® and finally freed myself from the resistance that was holding me back. When The Adult Chair® began certifying coaches, I was one of the first in line!

As a natural helper who had already been building a coaching practice, I knew this was the tool I had been missing. I can honestly say I have discovered the fullness of all that is in me through this work, and I am beyond thrilled to be able to offer that to all of you!

When you work with me, you are embarking on a journey of change. I will be your fearless leader to help motivate and lean on you so that you can get where you want to go. The underlying magic to the work we will do together is my ability to hold a safe and energizing space for you to do your work, my ability to reflect and share truth when it needs to be said, the use of art therapy when applicable, and MOST important, my training as a Certified Adult Chair®® Coach. 

You don’t have to settle for a life half lived, wondering “what if”… you just need a way forward! 


P.S. Are you thinking what I’m thinking?

Janice has two adult children and lives in the Iowa City area with her husband Brad (est. 1997) and the dog (Tucker) she said she would never get. She completed her training and certification as a Christian Life and Leadership Coach (CPLC) through the Professional Christian Coaching Institute. That training has been just as handy as her graphic design degree from Moorhead State University and her 6-year hands-on business degree from BU (BAGOLITAS University).

Janice is a serial entrepreneur, lover of life, and personal development coach. She wears many hats, including working at the University of Iowa in the John Pappajohn Entrepreneurial Center as a Business Coach for undergrads, grad students, and faculty. When she isn’t working with students, clients, or on project development for her entrepreneurial endeavors, she spends her free time creating for her ETSY store.

Janice is always dreaming with the Great Divine about ways to be a pattern breaker and changemaker in this world and how to inspire people to pursue their one precious life. She is an active member of the Iowa City Noon Rotary and, in the nooks and crannies, she can be found reading, doing the daily Wordle, Quordle, and Octordle, landscaping, gathering friends and family and organizing anything she can get her hands on.
