Advice on leadership...
"Jennifer is wonderful person to talk to about for advice on leadership, management, writing, and things such as marketing and branding. She is an empathetic listener in that she has experiences that reinforce advice and recommendations, and she has a wonderful disposition that is captivating; makes you want to listen to her. I find her to be a passionate individual when it comes to writing and speaking and always has a positive and constructive message to tell."

"Before working with Jen on my most recent book, I was feeling overwhelmed by trying to “do it right.” I'd not ever done a book with other authors and so I knew I didn't even know what I didn't know and thankfully Jen was right there at the exact moment that I needed her most. She was beyond professional and exactly as I expected - knew when to push, when to ask, when to prompt, ... she was the book's fairy godmother with magical pixie dust. If you have a book inside you and know without a doubt it's there, then I highly recommend working with Jen to make the experience beyond incredible and achieve an end-result that you are so entirely proud of."

"Your presentation was amazing..."
"Your presentation was amazing. You knew just how to engage the students by having them make connections before reading, grab their attention by using your management technique (I say “Einstein”, you say “Moo), and make them giggle (with the adorable pictures of the real Einstein and Moo)!…All of my students adore the sweet way you write about your cherished and animated cats. The individual personalities of each kitty shine throughout the book(s). My students are currently learning about characterization and your books lend themselves perfectly to my teaching."

- Busy professional
"You are super committed, encouraging and see the potentiality in others!
Thank you Jen! You're a gem!"
"After talking to Jen, I felt heard. I felt focused and calm about my path ahead. So much of the work I do is completely invisible, so it was amazing to be able to talk to someone and gain insights. You were able to listen to what I was saying and construct a different narrative than the one I have been stuck telling myself. You put your finger on the problem I couldn't identify on my own."

"Warm, personable, and very engaging speaker.."
"On January 31, 2017, Jennifer Milius visited Court Street Academy, a small private school in Portsmouth, Virginia, where she gave a presentation to grades K3 through 2nd. The children were delighted to hear all about the author's kitties, Einstein and Moo. Ms. Milius is a warm, personable, and very engaging speaker, and the children adored her. Besides reading them two of her books and showing slides and videos of the real-life Einstein and Moo, she also allowed plenty of time for questions from her eager young audience.
As the librarian at Court Street Academy, I am all about anything that will spark children's interest in books and help them to develop an eagerness for and love of reading. Having Ms. Milius come and give such a wonderful presentation certainly did just that! By the next afternoon, every Einstein and Moo book had been checked out by young readers whose enthusiasm for reading had been given a boost due to the opportunity to meet a genuine author who interacted so well with them."
