Featured Kaizen-Muse Creativity Coach: Jodi Lebrun

I am a Certified Kaizen-Muse Creativity Coach, Certified Renegade Muse Group Leader, Reiki Master/Teacher (Usui, Karuna, Sacred Flames, Guardian Angel) and a Holistic Health Practitioner. So, essentially, I have my feet on the ground and my head in the clouds!

I work from home so that I can be with my 4 kids while they grow up and so that my hard-working husband has a hot meal and a relatively tidy home each day. Yep, that may sound a little old fashioned but it is who I am and I make no apologies. But, once my family is taken care of, my other ‘personality’ comes out to play!

And Jodi is a blast!
