What makes Lifewell Coaching different?


We take a genuine interest in our clients’ lives as personal experience is a valuable source of lessons and inspiration. A keen ear for these details often influences your strategy for personal growth.


Living openly and authentically is the only way to achieve your ultimate goals. And while the truth can sometimes be difficult to hear, our coaching is built upon the belief that judgement stalls progress.


Every client must feel comfortable talking freely. Anything less can limit breakthroughs. This is why everything discussed in your sessions remains strictly between you and your life coach.

Career, family, health – you can have it all. Our experience has taught us that our own thoughts and feelings often create the barriers that block the path toward the life you want to live. Whatever your motivations or priorities, look to Lifewell life coaching for guidance in unlocking the best way forward, and the best in yourself.

Meet Jolene

I grew up in a small Iowa town, the second of eight kids. Negotiating and problem solving come natural to me. Among many other life skills. And most importantly, I learned to treat people with respect and kindness.

I married my high school sweetheart. I know commitment. I’m raising 2 young adulting grownups, learning to launch and support based on their needs. 

I believe in the power of a positive thought and an open mind.

As a third generation Chicago Cubs fan, I’m loyal and love to root for the underdog.
On vacations, I love to pause and appreciate a sunset, especially on a walk on the beach. My favorite colors come out in the fall and in the gold of a cornfield. I’m a bit of a thrill seeker who has skydived, bungy-jumped, ziplined, snorkeled and I’m willing to give something new a try.

You don’t have to ask me twice to get an ice cream. I enjoy cooking and growing things in my small garden. I appreciate a quick wit and sense of humor. Laughter is the best medicine. I believe in the power of a positive thought and an open mind.

I am passionate about helping people realize their highest potential.

As a graduate of the University of Iowa with a master’s degree in social work, I’m an advocate for others. I am a certified life coach, CEO and entrepreneur. I specialize in supporting individuals to live their best lives. Over the course of my career, I’ve worked with nonprofit agencies serving children and parents in the foster care system, survivors of sexual abuse and domestic violence and a group home for teen moms.

In my private practice I have helped individuals and families with mental health problems such as anxiety, depression, addiction, grief, and trauma. I’ve supported couples with marriage, divorce and custody issues. I’ve provided individuals with life skills, career exploration, identity awareness and parenting. I’ve specialized in working with children and teens.

My coaching practice prioritizes goal setting, personal growth and emotional wellness. I am passionate about helping people realize their highest potential.
