Your life is not measured by the amount of breaths you take, rather the things that take your breath away”. I’ve always loved this quote, loved the way it sounded in my own voice, loved the way it played out on another’s face as I had told them. Although I never really grasped what it meant, I knew it was deep and did the trick when I needed to provide a quote for a questionnaire. That it would give that certain “je ne sais quoi” I was searching for to encapsulate my ambitions and hopes as a person, although I envy the innocence of the thought and slipshod way of defining myself back then. I now understand a task like that would send me into spiraling self reflection, and an empty corner to stand in as I vex myself into every philosophical conversation I could insert myself into. The question of “Who I am” is one that proves fluid by each passing day, a fluidity that imbues every spark of creativity in my being not to answer or somehow document. Like a bee captivated by the falling rain, but fearful of its ignorance of it and sheer size alone of every drop. read more


There are things I am wary of. T-shirts with political candidates faces on them worn either sincerely or ironically, any sort of celebrity endorsing products because it’s insidious and plays on our most base instincts. Endorsements and advertisements themselves just strike me as odd because they appear very extrinsically motivated and kind of dishonest and I really want nothing to do with them. As the late author David Foster Wallace puts it, ads and or endorsements or testimonials, “create an anxiety relievable by purchase.” But all of that principled, not going to be a sucker for somebody’s product or like stump for their campaign, I didn’t even register that when Jenn asked me to write a testimonial for the site. It seemed obvious that everyone should know about Jenn Marshall and the thing she does. read more

Jenn Marshall of SPHERE Education has worked with our family for the last ten months.  She is professional and very knowledgeable in utilizing tools based on the latest neuroscience and coaching strategies. Jenn also has the ability to reach adolescents by building relationships based on trust and acceptance.  I highly recommend SPHERE Education where the emphasis is placed on equipping adolescents for adulthood success.

I have known Jenn on a business and personal level now for a few years. I don’t know too many folks that are as impressive as she is. Her talents and experience cross over into so many aspects of life. The way in which she provides direction is subtle but has pin point accuracy. Jenn affords young people the ability to create a path for development in all areas of life. I know of two other families that have benefited from Jenn and SPHERE and one of which is currently attending USC on a full ride thanks in part to Jenn and he commitment to our youth. read more

I’d like to thank you Jenn for the tremendous benefits I’ve seen in my son since he began life coaching with you. Over the last 6 months, not only does he look forward to the focused discussions about communication skills, goal setting and crafting his future but he his happier and more in control of his emotions, thoughts and feelings. Additionally he is learning the skills to develop higher levels of esteem. read more

Jenn Marshall taught me so many valuable lessons that will stick with me for the rest of my life. She taught me how to truly be a great friend and what type of people I want to surround myself with in order to be in a positive environment. She would call it “weeding your friend garden”, which just meant to have people in your life that truly care for you as much as you care for them. She also taught me to own who I am and the great qualities that set me apart from the rest of the world. If there was ever such a thing as a guardian angel, it would be her. read more

Jenn has been there for me through many obstacles and many of life’s challenges, she has taught me a great deal through it all, and I hope that she will stay with me for a while. She has proven herself to be nothing but a kind, forgiving, amazing, thoughtful, intelligent, beautiful through and through person that I look up to. She is one of the best decisions my parents have ever made for me. Without her I would not be as successful as I am today. read more
