A lay off!  As she said goodbye to her “corporate gig” she realized she hadn’t been truly happy or fulfilled in years. So she made a choice not to stay miserable any longer and to do whatever work was required to find happiness wherever she could. 

Jasmine leveraged a pivotal moment in her life to learn the true meaning of carpe diem. She found endless, little ways to connect with herself and others through JAZZ’ed UP” DIY projects,  style, entertaining and travel on a budget. Today, Jasmine is on a mission to help people live empowered and authentic lives. Through her Seize Your Life keynotes, workshops, and customized coaching sessions, Jasmine guides clients and audiences through a simple process to identify their goals and achieve their personal definition of success.
