JENNIFER HARVEY SALLIN
Jen is a psychologist, coach and mentor, trainer, and writer dedicated to raising awareness about adult giftedness and twice-/multi-exceptionality (2e/me) and meaningfully supporting gifted/2e/me people in their personal and social development. She has specialized in supporting gifted adults for the last decade, and in 2015, she created InterGifted 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 directing, she trains, mentors & supervises professionals who support gifted/2e/me clients, performs qualitative giftedness assessments for teens and adults, and writes. She's working on two books on giftedness now, and writes for InterGifted's blog and her own Rediscovering Yourself blog. She wants to help gifted and 2e/me people understand how their unique minds work, so that they can live generatively and have self-compassionate and joyful access to their own intellectual process. She's had to work hard in her own life to create these things for herself, and knows how much support it often takes in a non-gifted dominant world. Read a bit about her personal gifted journey here. For a more complete bio, visit her personal page at Rediscovering Yourself.
Aside from her work on giftedness, together with Karin Eglinton, Jen has created an initiative for reconnecting with the Earth during this time of global & ecological crisis. Learn more and join in at I Heart Earth.
