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.

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 […]

    My Newest Book Reading

    This is new for me, and I couldn't be more excited! As some of you know, I am now actively writing my second book which is all about women not waiting (to be enough, to be ready, to figure it out, to be asked...) In that spirit, I've decided to not wait to read parts of it aloud to an audience, so I'll be gathering one in June at a local bookstore to take it for a spin. Check back here for details on the specific date and location.

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!

New: An Unscripted Woman Podcast
