Jennifer spent 15+ years in both community and higher education settings within the wellness field. As trends, customer expectations and holistic approaches to wellness continue to evolve, students can expect “just in time” learning and applicable critical thinking skills to be part of every course.

“Wellness is something we all practice every day from the moment we wake up. How can we be our healthiest – mind, body and spirit – while also inspiring and educating others? Watching those choices in action and watching students have their own ‘ah-ha’ moments is the epitome of lifelong learning!” – Jennifer Myers
