Who are Kelley Connors & Mary Wallace Jaensch?


We are passionate, women leaders who are committed to helping other women leaders Incubate, cultivate and design their most fulfilling What’s Next. We’ve both made transitions, the hard way.  Let us share the insights that have allowed us the space and time to make a successful transition where we celebrate our past and integrate our gifts for a new future. 


Kelley Connors empowers a whole-being approach to women’s leadership, where wellbeing is a key strategy for success. Her own superpower has been her ability to use her intuition to design pathways that have possibility. As a women’s health advocate and senior executive in the healthcare communications industry, Kelley made at three different transitions work and has brought the most important parts of her past forward, while she integrated new learnings. As a life long learner, the opportunity to make transitions resulted in an expanded capacity for uncertainty and ambiguity and, ultimately, a belief in her own brave self.  This formed the basis for her own recent transition from consulting to coaching. She enjoys sharing her insights to women on retreats, workshops and in her online programs that focus on women leaders and entrepreneurs. One of her biggest sources of inspiration and gratitude is teaching a chair yoga and mindfulness class at Rosie’s Place in Boston for homeless women. She has a Masters Degree in Public Health, is a certified Health and Wellness Coach, and is President of Boston Women Communicators. 


Mary Wallace Jaensch is not your standard career transition advisor. She starts with how you want to feel to translate your dreams and passions into meaningful and rewarding professional opportunities. Her passion is supporting you to design your most inspiring, professional What’s Next at every stage of your career She uses
30 years of innovation experience and proven Design Thinking tools, to make it simpler to reconnect with what really matters to you enabling you to generate actionable options that better balance your heart and head and create your desired lifestyle. It is not magic or a pipe dream. Mary created new career directions for herself several times from corporate marketer to innovation consultant to Fortune 500 companies to VC-backed entrepreneur to career advisor. A recent client summed up working with her: “She skillfully facilitates deeper insights, helping her clients realize their truth, fueling the action that creates a brilliant next act.” When not working with clients, you will find Mary traveling the world, practicing Tango and yoga and delighting in her family.


Our “superpowers” are:


  1. We know that it is possible to create more fulfilling What’s Nexts based on our personal experiences and our many clients’ successes.

  2. We believe in the value and power of taking time and making space to germinate and cultivate new options as an effective approach to creating successful transitions with less stress and anxiety.

  3. We’ll give you our proven tools and methods that will help you connect your dreams, desires and feelings to what to do so that you can create new inspiring and fulfilling possibilities.


We agreed that convening a circle of women leaders to provide a safe, supportive, nurturing space and opportunity for creating new options and more effectively navigating change and transition could benefit all of us.


We hope that you will join us to INCUBATE WHAT’S NEXT Your Way!
