Partnering with women to create change

Founded on the belief in the capacity of women to be architects of change, SheChanges is all about creating the space for women to listen to and honor their instincts.

At the heart of SheChanges is Lael Couper Jepson, a seasoned boat rocker and a trusted guide who rides shotgun with women as they bring their thoughts, ideas, and perspectives to the foreground, their visions to fruition, and their impact to the moon. Women are drawn to SheChanges because the secret sauce resonates deeply with them, and invites them to keep it real, get to the heart of the matter, and be slightly irreverent in the process.

My book is done – HUZZAH!

It took me nine months (+ ten years), but I finally did it! I wrote my book. All told, I wrote it in 20 FULL days over that time - the rest was spent thrashing around in my creative quagmire, beating back doubt, angst and fear, and talking aloud to myself in the car, on runs, or in the shower. It's in the hands of an amazing midwife-editor now, but I hope to have it out this fall. In the meantime, here's a sneak peak at what it's about.
