Our Advisors

Jory Des Jardins

BLOGHER CO-FOUNDER

"My juggl is managing a portfolio of projects that speak to all of the things that matter to me, from supporting underrepresented founders, to finishing a collection of essays, to helping my daughters with their homework, to drinking more water. And being OK with being out of balance."

Debra Oler

OMNIA Partners
Former GRAINGER SVP, PRESIDENT-NA SALES & SERVICES

“My juggl is all about how to be healthy and balanced in my next chapter.  Balancing my husband, daughters, dogs, boards and consulting all while learning how to take better care of myself and explore what new things I am going to tackle in retirement."

Tereasa Surratt

GLOBAL GROUP CREATIVE DIRECTOR, OGILVY

“My juggl is being a mom to a 10 year old and a furry 14 year old, marriage to my best friend, my career, running Camp Wandawega and enjoying the juggl of it all.”

Jill Lyons

EVP DELIVERY, HAWKEYE

"My juggl is being a mom of two juggling co-parenting, a career, a relationship, my health, a pandemic and social unrest; staying present and focused and growing moment by moment amid the balls in the air and knowing which balls are glass, which will bounce back, and which ones to toss out.”

Lisa Hurwitz

PRESIDENT, HAPPI

“My juggl is being right here, right now-for my 2 boys, my husband, my career for my relationships and showing up for myself every day-without looking out too far back or too far forward so I don’t miss life while I’m too busy trying to plan it.”s to toss out.”

Erin Sarofsky

OWNER & EXECUTIVE CREATIVE DIRECTOR, SAROFSKY CORP.

“My juggl is never-ending and always evolving. As a person that is never satisfied with the status quo I am always balancing my focus between long term goals with the projet du jour, both at work and home. From preserving and upgrading my ridiculous Victorian home, to building out the studio, to writing a sitcom, to producing dozens
of projects at a time, to juggling the needs and wants of my daughter, husband and work-family, the juggl is real here.”to toss out.”

 

WHY theJUGGL

Our Advisors share why they are part of theJuggl community

“Every woman needs their own personal board of directors, and at any given time that cast of characters is in rotation.  We’re not meant to do this alone, and theJuggl is building a community of mentorship and connection like no other!”

JILL LYONS

 

"The older I get, the more my personal and professional lives have become one and the same, and the more self-care has become critical to my happiness. I want to support—and be supported—by others who are on a similar journey."

JORY DES JARDINS

 

“Women need to be seen fully-not just in their careers or through their relationships but as the whole, messy, always imperfect humans that we are and theJuggl’s mission to focus on the WHOLE woman is one that speaks to me at my core – how could I pass that up?!”

LISA HURWITZ

"How could I pass up an opportunity to be part of something that helps women be healthier, smarter, more confident and more prepared to be the best they can be in all aspects of their lives."

DEB OLER

 

“I jumped at the chance to be a part of this community built by and for women-it’s a resource I wish I had years ago.”

TEREASA SURRATT

 

“theJuggl really spoke to me because it acknowledges, in the forefront, that to do one thing another has to be set aside, for a moment at least. So often we hear about people doing it all and we wonder how – with all the things – that is possible. My hope for theJuggl is that it will be a resource for people to noodle and tweak how and what they are doing so they can keep their individual juggls going. I certainly can use some technique pointers.”
