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.

    An Unscripted Evening

    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. It’s essentially my version of a revival for heretics, misfits, rabble rousers and mavericks. Tickets are on sale now.

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!
