By many standards, anyone who is thirty-four is still considered young. But that’s how old life coach Jennifer Chapman was when she suffered a life-threatening stroke. Woefully, that was also how old Jennifer’s mother was when she passed away. Fortunately for her, Jennifer had an amazing and supportive family after her mom passed, and today, Jennifer has recovered from her stroke and turned her overwhelming testing into a story of triumph.
Jennifer is the owner of Just Commit Coaching. Through her program, the coach helps stroke survivors and anyone who has had a debilitating injury or tragedy steal their joy. Jennifer’s transformational coaching system has helped many people bounce back from sickness, depression, tragedy, loss, and extreme grief.
The life coach grew up in a happy home in Colt’s Country. Her childhood was brimming with love and happy memories. However, their bliss would meet an abrupt end when Jen’s mom prematurely passed away when she was only eleven years old. Jennifer Chapman spent the rest of her childhood with her dad and brother. And while their home stayed loving and warm, they were never the same again.
After graduating from college, Jennifer would enter the corporate world as a sales professional. She would spend the first ten years of her professional life in the beer, wine, and spirits industry. Jennifer loved her job, but she would later transition to a new industry still as a sales representative. She excelled immensely in her field, earning a place in the President’s Club of her company.
But Jennifer Chapman would hit her proverbial rock bottom when she turned thirty-four. Out of nowhere, the sales expert would suffer a stroke. “No red flags, healthy by all standards, and instantly my life changed,” Jennifer puts it. She survived the ordeal and went into physical rehabilitation for two straight weeks and therapy for four months.
While Jennifer would recover completely in a physical sense, her emotional and mental well-being received a beating. She would spend nine months with a life coach who helped her pivot. “I had to understand that this happened for me, this is my purpose!” exclaims Jennifer Chapman. “I have implemented practices in my daily routine where self-care is priority to make sure my mind, body, and spirit are in full alignment. I know I cannot serve anyone else unless my own cup is full of love, joy, acceptance, belief, and strength.”
After benefiting greatly from coaching, Jennifer would decide to make a career shift and become a coach herself. At the core of her business is honoring her mother’s legacy. The coach shares how she works every day to make mom proud. She does that by helping other people realize their value and purpose. Now, Jennifer Chapman believes that everything that has happened in her life — both the good and the bad — truly happened for a beautiful reason.
Today, Jennifer devotes her life to helping people cope with and overcome hardships. She aids people who suffer from anxiety, depression, and grief. Using her story as a beacon of light, Jennifer hopes to inspire more people to rise above the challenge and turn their life around.
