Author, speaker and Transformational writing mentor Jill Hendrickson helps women find the gift in their traumatic experiences and turn their “mess” into their ultimate success. As the creator of the “From Trauma to Triumph” program, she specializes in helping women turn their setback into their comeback using writing as a tool for healing.
Jill started her career as a reporter on Capitol Hill and was first woman to sit on the copy desk of The Japan Times newspaper in Tokyo. She has worked for the Associated Press and in radio and TV and currently teaches writing at the university level. Jill has lived all over the world and served clients from North America to Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. As a survivor of domestic violence, she understands how difficult it is to bounce back from trauma AND how to use a devastating experience to lift yourself higher and shoot you towards your goal. To that end, she has started a movement to help 1 million women worldwide use their setback as the launching pad to their comeback using writing as a tool for healing. It’s her intention that women empower themselves and even be able to create a new and exciting career through sharing their stories to impact and inspire others.
