“Hi- My name is Jenna and I am self help junkie.” I was born a dancer. I lived and breathed dance, well into my 30s. When I was 18, I went against everything my parents wanted me to do and set out to be a professional dancer. (Talk about swimming with sharks.) The professional dance world consists of some of the most beautiful and athletic people in the world. It also consists of a dump truck of pain and rejection- both physical and mental. I learned I had to take care of my mind & body through food, exercise, pain management and a lot of books. I’ve been through debilitating injuries, weight issues, cancer scares, losing loved ones to cancer, child birth, divorce, multiple careers/businesses and pretty much everything life has to offer…Through all of the ups and (extreme) downs, I have learned one thing- I CAN HANDLE ALL OF IT…and so can you!
In this crazy world, we all tend to forget how to take care of ourselves and stop comparing ourselves to what we see on social media. It took me forty years to get to where I am today in terms of Body, Mind & Soul health, and I have to say it wasn’t easy. I’ve studied many self-help spiritual gurus, spiritual workshops, business development, business gurus, fitness trends, diet trends, healing chronic illness/disease through food and I even went so far as to become a myofascial release therapist to manage my own pain of 2 herniated discs and chronic back pain.
(I also went to Le Cordon Bleu to become a licensed chef because, well, I LOVE FOOD.)
Healing Foods has become my passion. Most of the population has little to no education on the benefits of foods and the actual medicinal properties. Food heals! Everyday I strive as a chef to share information about how we can create new, healthy eating habits and still enjoy what we eat. I DO NOT PROMOTE DIETS. I promote "LIVITS"- eat what you love, but do it mindfully, so your body can process it and actually benefit from it.
This bio isn’t here for me to brag about all of my accomplishments, but rather to give you insight into the extensive research I have done with food, exercise, hormones, relationships, self-care, parenting, etc…and to let you know that you have come to the right place to get your own body, mind & soul where you want them to be. I’m not a coach that thinks she knows better, I’m a coach that has got your back, and will be there for you every step of the way!
