Jen Yockey, Owner

Hi!  I am so glad that you stopped by.  Please have a look around. Take your time and if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.  You can do that here.

A little about me:

Most of my adult life I have been a teacher.  Out of college, I wrote curriculum and grants for inner city schools in Seattle and Bellevue. After I found my post college sea legs, I taught golf for nearly 20 years.  In 2011, I started a new teaching gig; raising my son. However, I think he is teaching me more than I am teaching him.

I am a Yoga & Meditation Teacher, Founder of Recover You™, Mentor, Recovery Advocate,Writer, Coach, Entrepreneur, Professional Student and Chronic Dog Rescuer. My most important job, however, is partnering with my husband to be an example and a light for our son.
