Jennifer has always been interested in helping people become healthier. Her childhood desire to be a nurse led to graduation from Boston University with a B.S. and RN and to a thirty-year nursing career. She cared for severely burned children at Shriner's Burns Institute in Boston. Then she taught expectant mothers in Ireland through co-founding the Athlone Antenatal Society. Next she acquired Oncology Certification at Greater Baltimore Medical Center and ran the first Outpatient Chemotherapy Clinic at Union Memorial Hospital. Later she was Nurse Manager for a Gynecologic Oncology surgeon's practice at Sinai Hospital in Baltimore. In addition, she led therapeutic counseling groups for a decade.
More recently, since 2012, she has lectured at Grand Rounds at the Southwest Naturopathic College in Phoenix, AZ; and taught EFT to graduating Seniors in Alternative Medicine at Towson State University in 2013 and 2014.
In 2000, Jennifer's own health was severely challenged by Systemic Candida (fungus) and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Using her knowledge of traditional medicine, and exploring new complementary disciplines, she found a blend that restored her to health. Determined to use what she had learned to benefit others, she became a Healing Touch Certified Practitioner, accredited by the American Holistic Nurses Association.
Jennifer's scientific training ingrained an exacting standard for a treatment's effectiveness. Her experiences as a patient added a depth of empathy and a wealth of knowledge of the subtler psychological and energetic dimensions of wellness. She now helps others develop an integrative approach to their health.
