Episode 108: In AWE of Dr. Jenny Severson--Overcomer Series

In AWE Podcast

Jenny Severson played college hoops at Lake Forest College, (Lake Forest, IL) and was part of two state championship runs at Madison East High School (Madison, WI). She’s a mom of three growing children (1st to 6th grade currently), married to Todd Johnson and lives in Long Lake, MN. Jenny loves teaching and was recruited to school principal at 26 years old. A defining moment for Jenny was a health crisis in 2018 and she works with principals to create engaging virtual staff meetings, speaks to audiences all over the globe on bouncing back from adversity, and finding the silver lining through gratitude and optimism. In this Episode, we discuss: Dr. Jenny’s mission to serve others through two recent publications that encourage us to thrive and engage in gratitude. She shares about her experience choosing to overcome the challenges professional during COVID and embracing the time to write the messages for us. Dr. Jenny inspires us with her personal overcoming story through isolation from a move, a health crisis, loss of her father, and much more. And we gain insight into the power of real gratitude and the impact it can have in our lives. I have to say that listening to Dr. Jenny’s story of overcoming inspired me deeply and helped me to process some of my own experiences through her lens of gratitude. Regular listeners will understand why I feel connected to Jenny after one conversation, and I know you will too. It is my honor to share with you Dr. Jenny Severson’s Overcomer story.
