Jennifer is an experienced, registered yoga teacher, a certified life coach and masters educated school teacher. Her passion to help others obtain and maintain a balanced lifestyle of health and wellness came after she and her husband abandoned their careers at a Fortune 500 Corporation to pursue their hearts calling.
After departing from these jobs, Jenn, along with her husband Tim, threw on backpacks and traveled through South America for seven months. Through that seven-month experience, Jenn was able to connect to her authentic self which allowed her the opportunity to find clarity on what the next life adventure would be.

She knew this world and the people in it needed more teachers to offer "permission" to achieve life goals without judgement and committed to this purpose.
Upon returning to the states, Jenn immersed herself in a deeper study of vinyasa yoga and received a 200-hour certification from Frog Lotus in 2007. In 2009 Jennifer received her Masters in Health Education and began teaching middle/high school Health at a local school district.
