Founder of Visionary B-School, Jen Kelchner


My name is Jen Kelchner and I am an expert at developing people into their most engaged, highest performing self.

Transformation is my lifeblood as I am an expert navigator of change.

I’ve been in a cycle of change since birth as my family moved frequently, and I found myself always being the new kid on the block. Change and I are the best of friends. And from my earliest playgrounds to corporate America, my passion has always been to provide guidance and encouragement through the influence of leadership and advising on problems. Combining my love of change, people and leadership, I swiftly navigate others through the uncharted waters of change with success and reduced fear.
