JENNIFER HARVEY SALLIN
Jen is founder and director of InterGifted. She is a psychologist, coach and mentor, trainer, and writer whose work is dedicated to raising awareness about giftedness in adulthood and meaningfully supporting gifted people in their personal and social development. She has specialized in supporting gifted adults for the last decade, and in 2015, she created InterGifted as a gifted social experiment to allow gifted people to socially engage in meaningful ways and to personally develop in community. Learn more about why Jen started InterGifted here.
Along with the operational side of running InterGifted, she spends a lot of her time training, mentoring & supervising professionals, such as psychologists, psychiatrists and coaches, to support gifted clients; she cultivates the work of InterGifted's network of coaches and mentors; she cultivates the work of our partner projects; and she performs giftedness assessments. She still makes a little space when she can to coach and mentor highly, exceptionally and profoundly gifted adults on their self-development journey. Jen is particularly passionate about partnering with and supporting gifted people on the path to self-actualization, and you can read more about that here.
She's working on a few books on giftedness now, and writes for InterGifted's blog and her own Rediscovering Yourself blog. Jen wants to help gifted people understand how their unique minds work, so that they can create meaningful relationships, work, and self-compassion. She's had to work hard in her own life to create these things for herself, and knows how much support it takes. Read a bit about her personal gifted journey here.
