Meet Your Coach & Consultant (Coachsultant), Jean!


Thank you for visiting my website! My company name “Avail” is simple. When used as a verb, it means to be of use or value. When it’s used as noun, it means advantage; use; efficacy; effective use in the achievement of a goal or objective. Whether used as a verb or a noun — this is how we describe what we do at Avail, we work with individuals and organizations to move forward.

Our logo is a visual of a process. Starting at the bottom—there is always a beginning to learning, development and growth, as we move up or forward, things get messy. Getting from point A to point B is not a straight line. If it were that easy, then there would be no learning or growing taking place. When we come out at the end, it leads to continuous learning and development that goes on into infinity.


Jean's exceptional understanding of business and how people and their talents are instrumental the success of the business. 

Jean has worked with small start up companies to fortune 50 organizations, both in the public and private sector.
