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 a strange feeling of freedom seemed to be growing inside me. I was responsible for no one but myself. 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 and shared the local secrets with me. Things like Islands with Wild Ponies, Natural Hot Springs 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 met amazing women everywhere I went. They simply fell into my path offering Smiles, Generosity, Friendship, Kindness, Gentleness, Reassurance, Support, and Love. They felt like Sisters. It was a beautiful thing.
In a very short period of time, EVERY aspect of my life has changed.
The biggest unexpected find, as I drove 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.

It’s was my time to rediscover myself. I hope it’s yours too.

Her business alliance model weaves customer engagement with unique blends of products and services and leverages a strategic outreach plan where each business owner achieves new heights.
Personally, Jodi prioritizes her desire to seek endless personal growth by stretching outside the comfort zone that comes with all that is “familiar”, and spending time with others who are also in love with life. The core of HerQuest's overall mission is to guide women on how to free themselves from perceived limitations and embrace the awareness of how to foster the life they want.
“I am a woman who lost track of herself. At one point, I would have explained it as having no choice but to overwork and neglect myself and my family. But now that I stand in a different place, I hold a different perspective, and I see the world and the past in a very different light."
- Jodi, Founder of HerQuest
