Joleene is a former central New York television reporter turned transformational speaker, author and CNY’s “Unstuck” consultant for women entrepreneurs. During her time in television she helped people through her investigative work and human interest stories. She saw people fight – and fight hard – to overcome obstacles everyday, and it gave her the strength to stand up and do the same for herself. She has suffered the wrath of addiction, loss through death, career changes, relationship challenges and other personal struggles, eventually hitting rock bottom. That’s when she realized there simply had to be a better way to live.
Joleene set out to learn as much as she could about love, laughter and acceptance of what is; three realities that changed her life and taught her how to live with purpose and without suffering. She discovered that the power of positive affirmation and a strong belief system helped her make dramatic changes in her life. She brings with her today laughter, encouragement, and life-changing ideas and goals. Her charismatic presence inspires others to take action in order to achieve greatness in their lives both personally and professionally.
