Connie Jones

Connie Jones

Connie grew up in a small town in Georgia to high performance, highly religious, loving parents involved in the realm of education. Being driven in a high performance family, she was always expected to do what others felt she should do and be like, even though Connie herself did not feel the same way. She was expected to be the valedictorian, the prom queen, and more, even though those things did not interest Connie and it cost her dearly throughout her early life. It was this lifestyle that caused Connie to nearly break down in her 20's and seek therapy and find out what her true passions and life was all about, namely being an empath, an intuitive,  and a coach/therapist.
