Jaime-Alexis Fowler began her career as an academic, hoping that a university career would allow her to create change in our society. Finding that path to be too slow, she moved on to a series of organizations where she could grow as a social innovator. Today she’s the Founder and Executive Director of Empower Work, a ground-breaking nonprofit that allows workers to connect with a coach when they’re feeling overwhelmed or stressed out. The service allows you to connect anonymously — by texting or web chat – when you have no place else to turn. Jaime-Alexis describes how their free coaching works, she explains why one-on-one support can be so important, and she talks about building her career as a change agent
