Michelle Jensen has a diverse background encompassing a variety of experience teaching, creating, and implementing programs from 1975 to 1978 for two Girls Clubs in Santa Barbara, CA, including serving as the Teen Director of the Goleta Valley Girls club. She was also the creator of the first Career Development program for teen girls at that club. She has worked extensively with communities to establish rapport and working relationships with service and business agencies who complement one another.
After her son was born in 1990, she began a business called “Precious Creations” and helped create and co-author a workbook on self-esteem. It is called “Evolution of the Self,” by psychologist Clarise Blanchard, Charlaine Froide, and Michelle Jensen. Through games and exercises, it is to be used by new parents and teachers to help bring fresh consciousness of the importance of the child’s spirit and how much they have to teach us. Michelle also co-authored “The Effective Guide to Parenting.”
After receiving her Master’s Degree in Psychology with an emphasis on Parenting, she has worked extensively with parents in many areas, including Child Development, Grief/Loss, and Single Parenting issues. Through her experience and extensive research, she has determined that prevention is the key to helping many people.
