Jen grew up in Alaska and served in the Army for eight years working in law enforcement. She was introduced to yoga when she moved to Maryland five years ago and fell in love with the practice. She graduated from the University of Maryland in 2016 with a Bachelor Degree in Kinesiology and plans to obtain a Master’s in Yoga Therapy. Jen hopes to utilize yoga to help Veterans suffering with PTSD, individuals suffering with addiction, and those with physical disabilities.
Jen completed her 200-hour yoga teacher training in August 2017 through CorePower Yoga. She enjoys utilizing her knowledge of the body to educate individuals on proper alignment (through hands on assists and verbal cuing) and to empower individuals into their own authentic practice. She also adores cheerleading her students into pushing past mental barriers in order to find their true strength in their practice.
Jen lives in the Annapolis area with her spouse, pack of dogs, and three cats. She enjoys practicing yoga, running, hiking, paddle boarding, and volunteering at the SPCA of Anne Arundel County.
