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.

On Turning 50: A Story

May 18, 2018

Age is a funny thing. On one hand I’ve always found it rather arbitrary and annoying—a number that aims to qualify, and in many cases DISqualify, the value or merit of an opinion, idea, or presence. As an old soul who historically has looked younger than my years, I have felt my age (or what others perceive to be my age) as irrelevant and confining, […]

Pilot: A Salon for Web-Thinking Women

I’ll be piloting a new concept this summer that I’ve been itching to dig into and see if it’s sticky. These days, when so many critical issues are in our face as a society, and it seems there are more problems than solutions, I am hungry to gather a group of select women to explore our perspectives and literally “map” what we see and feel—interconnections, intersections + reinforcing loops.  The idea is not to “solve” any one particular problem but to illuminate a larger “web” of understanding as a means to create clarity (and inform action). If this sounds of interest to you, please reach out to me.   More information.

Follow Me On Instagram

Instagram is where I’m hanging out the most these days on social media, so please feel free to follow me there if that’s your preferred beat. For Facebook fans, know that most of my posts from Instagram are posted on my page as well, so you won’t miss out!

A Look Inside Unscripted With Lael

It’s been nearly two years since the release of my first book Unscripted: A Woman’s Living Prayer. As I shift my energy to completing my second book, I took a quiet moment to honor the process and the woman I was “back then” by compiling this video story from an interview I did. 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!
