Jeanne Westervelt Rice

Jeanne is a communication specialist and executive-level coach who has helped hundreds of business leaders over the years manage their careers and develop their professional brands using a variety of reflective writing techniques. She routinely asks her client to keep leadership journals to help clarify difficult decisions, manage stress, remain composed under pressure, and identify ways to reduce resistance to new ideas.

She is certified by the Center for Journal Therapy and the Therapeutic Writing Center, both of Denver, Colorado. Jeanne believes deeply in the transformative benefits of journaling and has led classes for wellness and grief healing through New Jersey’s Atlantic Health System, as well as open-enrollment programs based on the Journal to the Self® workshop created by Kathleen (Kay) Adams, LPC.

Jeanne holds a master’s degree in journalism from Northwestern University, and has worked as an Adjunct Professor at Rutgers University in the School of Communication. She is the co-author of Brave Leaders: Finding the Guts to Make Meaningful and Lasting Change (Advantage, 2020), which incorporates some of Jeanne’s reflective writing techniques to help build courage in the workplace.
