A Letter From Founder of HerQuest, Jodi
Well, the truth is, despite best laid plans, I found myself purging through my life’s belongings and packing up my home of 20+ years. Facing the unexpected upheaval in my life, I proactively decided to rent my home and safeguard the real estate equity I had earned. I had worked feverishly for the past few months to be able to depart while I was still tapped into the courage, to go on what seemed to be some kind of journey. One that I had not planned, defined, researched, analyzed, not in any way. I had never, ever done anything like this.
I anticipated all sorts of sadness tied to these unexpected changes, but I found myself realizing a strange feeling of freedom seemed to be growing inside me. I was responsible for no one but myself. My living expenses were appropriately paired down, which I expected to feel like more of a downward spiral, but I found, surprisingly, it didn’t. In fact, when I left my driveway, with what I felt were the parts of my life that I needed with me for who knew what next, the pit in my stomach released by the time I was at the end of my street. For the first time in my life, I did not have a path planned to follow. I wasn’t even trying to make one. I only had a destination date and time….18 days away.
As I drove from Massachusetts to Florida, I found the locals guided me. Mostly women, but some very kind men as well, they shared the local secrets with me. Things like Islands with Wild Ponies, Natural Hot Spring Baths in the Appalachian Mountains, sleeping nestled on a Heated Marble Floor in a Korean Bath House, Drum Circles where I have found I can dance spurred on by the beat of the drums, literally for hours. Adventure after Adventure. I am meeting amazing women everywhere I go. They simply fall into my path offering Smiles, Generosity, Friendship, Kindness, Gentleness, Reassurance, Support, and Love. They feel like Sisters. Literally, everywhere I go. It is a beautiful thing.
In a very short period of time, EVERY aspect of my life has changed.
The biggest unexpected find, as I drove 18 days down to Florida, turning where I felt the urge to, stopping for no reason or maybe a sudden one, is that I like my own company. I like who I am. Not saying I’m perfect, not in any way. But I do know who I am today. And I like what I have found within me.
Each component of HerQuest reflects what I felt was lacking when my life pitched unexpectedly out of control. I maximized the skills I had learned and earned, with my professional experience and education, to create pathways to guide women to find their own solutions.
HerQuest offers is a network of female experts, healers, educators and guides to assist you in creating the experiences you desire to find yourself again.

There is only one mandatory ingredient. It is to understand that your solution must include having fun. I believe each Woman’s Quest includes FINDING THE INSPIRATION OF JOY in order to build a personal HAPPILY EVER AFTER.
It’s was my time to rediscover myself. I hope it’s yours too.
