Jennifer A. Garrett is an internationally recognized author, entrepreneurial-minded executive, and powerful speaker who possesses a passion for helping and inspiring others, pushing boundaries, and driving individuals and organizations out of their comfort zones to achieve greatness. Today Jennifer, together with her organization, Feel the Push, teaches individuals how to play for success and cross the goal line by showing them how principles from the game of American football can be taken off the field and applied to one’s career, business, and the personal setting to be successful in life.
