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. It is a catalyst for women to take themselves—their lives, their organizations, their thoughts and experiences of the world—more seriously.

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.

Get Your Groove On, Virginia

January 20, 2017

Mrs. Claus and I had a rather spirited exchange this past Christmas season. It came on the heels of my SheSpeaks storytelling evening — the one in which I wore a long red dress, made an entrance strutting through the sold out crowd to Christina Aquilera’s Show Me How You Burlesque, stood proudly in the bright hot white light on the stage, and let it rip […]

    Space To Write

    As many of you know, I am actively in the process of writing my second book (it's writing me, actually...) It's thrilled it's decided it's time to come out. My heart is all over it as the premise—an invitation to women (through the use of story) to stop waiting—is at the core of the work I do every day with women. I've decided to give myself some creative space this Spring and Summer to birth it. While I will continuing to coach my clients, I will be pausing all my events until this Fall. It feels kind of delicious to treat the birth of this book as an event unto itself! If you'd like to get a taste of my book as I'm writing it, feel free to follow my journey Instagram

    An Unscripted Evening: Fall

    For those of you hungry for some inspiration, food for thought, or fire to fuel change...this evening is for you. Part storytelling, part improv, part book reading (including some from the NEW book I'm working on!), this is event is me: unscripted. Heart-filled and soul-centered, I will let it rip eight ways 'til Tuesday, serving up whatever I've got in the the spirit of this 90-minute feast. More information

Looking for my book Unscripted?

My first book Unscripted: A Woman's Living Prayer was released at the end of 2015 and has been met with wonderful reviews and high praise. I've done a couple of book readings locally and plan on doing more, so stay tuned. Copies of my books are available locally in Portland, Maine and are also sold on most on-line booksellers.

Maine Women’s Magazine Interview

I was so honored to be featured in the March issue of Maine Women's Magazine on "Women Who Inspire". The writer described me as bumping up against a live wire. I'll take that.

My Telltale Story at Soundbites

In October 2016, I was invited to be one of five speakers to take the stage at the Frontier Cafe in Brunswick as part of the Soundbites Series. The theme was "telltale" and I had a blast. The videos are out now if you'd like to see for yourself. Here it is!

An Unscripted Woman Podcast

Creating a podcast has been on my list to do for years, and I finally made it happen. It's my quick and easy creative response to the requests to hear me speak ("riff") more and to have an audio version of my book available. While I'll be taking a brief hiatus from this spring/summer while I write my book, there are plenty episodes out there to dip into and I'll be back with more this fall! Check it out!
