Are you ready to give a hoot to the chicks who are a hoot? Today, we have not one but two special guests: Mary & Jill, the incredible minds behind Girls Mentorship! They have found their higher purpose in educating young women and girls with life and development skills they need to know.
Jill Petersen is a serial optimist with a bubbly personality and animated expressions. She is a wife, mother of two boys, and seeks fun in everything she does! She is an experienced coach & former leader at lululemon, where she spent nearly a decade building her passions and career. Her superpower lies within connecting & building trust quickly with others to help people find their greatness.Jill holds a B.A. in Interdisciplinary Studies (Communication) and (Mass Communication) from Arizona State University. She received a certificate in Mindfulness Leadership from ASU in 2018 and is Yoga Alliance 200-hour certified.
Mary Frances is an avid community supporter, adult cheerleader, experienced coach & leader. Part of her joy as a mentor is not just being the one who leads but also having the ability to raise others to live into their leadership potential. She has a B.S. in Exercise and Wellness from Arizona State University and an MBA in the school of hard knocks. She started her entrepreneurship journey as a certified Crossfit L2 coach and gym owner, where she worked with hundreds of kids, teens, and adults. She is an H-O-T leader: Humble, Open, and Transparent, sharing about her tumultuous past dealing with family trauma, abuse, CPS, and a broken home, all of which have led to a strong desire to break the mold and assist others in doing the same.
Together, we’ll dive into a deep conversation about personal growth, development, and the real world tools we all need to lead our best lives. Who needs personal development and why? How can we raise a better generation with more emotional intelligence, curiosity, and empathy? What should we do to encourage personal growth in our kids and in ourselves? Join us for a brand new season and find out how we can start empowering and impacting the world we live in for the better!
