Jennifer Boudrye is the founder of Parent With Care LLC where she helps parents of LGBTQ+ youth, teens, and young adults to understand, connect and celebrate their kids through 1:1 coaching, group coaching, workshops, and presentations. Jennifer is a Safe Zone trained Gender & Sexuality Alliance (GSA) Faculty Advisor, a certified coach through the Jai Institute for Parenting, the Education Director for Equality Loudoun (an LGBTQ+ advocacy nonprofit in Loudoun County, VA), and she facilitates a parent support group for the Ryan Bartel Foundation (a nonprofit working to end teen suicide).
As the founder of Parent With Care LLC, Jennifer is committed to helping parents develop and implement compassion, awareness, respect, and empathy in their parenting. She most enjoys supporting parents through the turbulent teen years because she recognizes that if her parents had the necessary tools she might not have been such a hellion in her teens! She is the parent of 3 adult children, one of whom is bisexual, and the bonus parent to a transgender man who is dad to an adorable 1-year-old. She has unique, personal experience, perspective, and understanding of parents of LGBTQ+ youth and the paths they take alongside their kids' journey.
Jennifer's favorite anthem is "Red Dress" by Maia Sharp: https://youtu.be/f-GDoaa6Csk
Books that have changed Jennifer's life are "The Four Agreements" by Don Miguel Ruiz and "Furiously Happy" by Jenny Lawson.
