Her background as a coach, teacher and counselor have offered her the opportunity to work with diverse populations of people from all walks of life from across the country and around the world. Jenna has a special interest in the connection between the mind and body, how one affects the other, and empowering individuals towards overall wellness. Her long-term goal is to combine counseling with physical activity/training to achieve a form of integrated health care.
