Founding Director

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.


Community Leader
Karin is a coach, mentor & assessor for gifted and 2e/me people and the professionals who support them. She administrates our peer community and our HEPG group, leads community and initiative development, and provides leadership development mentoring for our network of coaches. As part of our assessment team, Karin offers qualitative giftedness assessments. As our therapy search coordinator, she helps connect gifted people with gifted-specific therapeutic support. In coaching, she helps clients tune into their intuition through cultivation of dreamwork and energetic awareness, in order to help them thrive in their personal development journey. As facilitator, she teaches workshops and courses on gifted development, gifted-specific relational skills, and gifted intuitive practices.
Karin has been in the personal development field, working with neurodiverse populations and serving in leadership roles for most of her adult life. In addition to being formally trained in the visual arts and spiritual development, she has gone through extensive training with Jennifer Harvey Sallin to specialize in coaching, assessing and teaching in the gifted population. She has devoted many years of her life exploring relational psychology, attachment, trauma healing (especially somatic approaches), energy and intuitive work, and nature connection, and now applies those insights to gifted-specific personal development. You can learn more about some of her work on relationships here, on cultivating aliveness here, on gifted trauma healing here, and on art/nature/healing here. See above for information on Karin's work with Jen on our I Heart Earth initiative.
