Joleyne Mayers-Jaekel
Graphic Recorder, Information Architect, Consultant



Why I do what I do...

I was introduced to the world of Graphic Recording in 2009 during a professional development seminar for teachers. I was fascinated by the increased level of engagement from participants as the use of the visual medium increased their interest and buy-in. I continued to observe Graphic Recording in various venues and used a Graphic Recorder in my thesis research.

I began to seriously consider Graphic Recording/Graphic Facilitation as a career path in 2014 and was fortunate enough to train with a pioneer in visual process work. I travelled to Victoria, British Columbia and feel honoured to have been taught and mentored by Christina Merkley. Shift It Coach - Click Here

As a visual learner myself, I believe strongly in the power of working visually. The application of using visuals are wide ranging and I have implemented this way of communication directly into my teaching and facilitating for students, teachers, presenters, leaders and consultants.

I feel very fortunate to have this opportunity to pursue my passion. I look forward to providing visual clarity and drawing your stories.
