About the Author

Jen Pestikas is a type-A super achiever. She always got straight A’s and was devastated if a B showed up on her report card(s). Jen set the bar high and strove to check all the boxes in what defined a successful life. Her super achieving nature shaped her career in the corporate world.

After twenty years in corporate, climbing the ladder in financial services from a bank teller to a Senior Vice President in a Chicago land financial institution and doing ‘all the right things’, Jen’s health plummeted. In 2019, her thrusters burnt out, her body stopped functioning, and emotionally, she was a shell of her former self with no passion nor direction.

Jen’s time of healing that followed was an arduous journey and a gift. A gift she had to give herself, her husband, children, and her life. She was forced to acknowledge that lives weren’t perfect. She did not have to check all life’s success boxes, and she did not have to be super woman. For the first time, Jen finally understood what she wanted. Jen knew she wanted to give back to women so they could avoid the traps of overachieving, perfectionism, and not speaking their truth.

Jen has a Master of Business Administration (MBA) from Lake Forest Graduate School of Management, a Bachelor of Arts (BA) from Indiana University and is coaching certified from the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC).

Jen has developed the Brave Women at Work brand, hosts the Brave Women at Work podcast, and offers coaching services to women who are looking to get to the next level in their careers. You can listen to the Brave Women at Work podcast on Apple, Google, Stitcher, and Spotify. Connect with Jen at or via LinkedIn.
