Our Origin Story
tellent created the The Propeller Experience as a response to closing the disproportionate gap mid-level career women are experiencing due to the Covid-19 pandemic. These problems were always here, but evidently more exasperated with the onset of this unprecedented situation. Not only are women left to navigate a new way of working in response to the shift to remote work, many have to act as primary caregiver to families while working full time. Furthermore, entire industries that were primarily female-dominated, have been virtually wiped out. This has left women feeling hopeless, burnt out and fed up as they search for new work or struggle to adjust their lives to the changes and challenges the pandemic has hurdled at them. We brought these women together with over 30 instructors, mentors, coaches and guides and gave them a solution. A solution that would help them to navigate their next career move without compromise and with community.
The program has grown and evolved and every day, we help women to get more out of their careers - more of what they want. Maybe it's more money, more impact, more influence, more alignment, more growth, more freedom, but always MORE OF THEMSELVES, without compromise.
Join the hundreds of women who are choosing to invest in themselves.

Meet Our Team
Hi, Jenny here! I am the Founder and CEO of tellent. I am an entrepreneur and problem solver committed to unleashing the power of women and increasing access to opportunity for all.
In 2016 I launched tellent with a mission to change the way that work works for women and to create more inclusive and equal opportunities to earn, without compromise. In 2016, what I wanted from my career and my life no longer felt possible in the traditional work environment, so I set out to build it. Not just for me, but for every woman who felt like she has had to compromise on pay, growth, family or passion when navigating her career choices. All opportunities were not created equal, we set out to change that.
In my work you will find me challenging the status quo and contributing on topics pertaining to the progression women in the workforce, the future of work, and the rise of the gig economy. You can view more of my media contributions here. In my life, you will find me challenging my husband and living my best life with my two children! You can follow me personally on Instagram here.
My professional experience spans three continents across brand strategy and international market development. While my primary school teachers didn’t appreciate my questions challenging “why”, I embrace that curiosity and the perspective that comes with challenging the status quo to create impactful and lasting change.
I am me. Without compromise.
