Jenna began her career in advertising in 2008, and in 2014 after a trip abroad, started experiencing gut issues, hormonal imbalance, connective tissue pain, cognitive dysfunction, metabolic stress, insomnia, anxiety, depression, and other neurological symptoms. Due to the stressful nature of the job, she dismissed her body's warning signs until she lost the capacity to function. In 2016, she left her career in advertising and began a quest to understand why her body was breaking down. After spending her life savings on both conventional and holistic treatments for Lyme Disease/co-infections, CIRS, and multiple autoimmune issues, Jenna became her own health advocate and continued post graduate studies in nutritional science and functional medicine. Through her health journey, she realized that addressing the physical aspect of disease is only one-third of the puzzle. The spirit, soul (mind, will, emotions), and body all need to be addressed and in alignment for true healing to occur.
It was during this health journey where Jenna encountered the love of Jesus and she experienced the presence of God; a love like no other that brought her into a place of reconciliation, healing, and led her to community.
Through discipleship under Virginia Dixon, she was taught fundamental principles of self government that helped her eliminate confusion, chaos, and dis-ease. Reconciling the inner conflict between the spirit, soul, and body enabled her to step into clarity, order, freedom and ultimately a place of R.E.S.T.™ (relational, emotional, spiritual truth). Once her body was in a parasympathetic state of rest, the tools she learned as a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner were utilized and her body started to heal. Jenna now practices as an FDN-P and Ambassador of R.E.S.T.™, helping people eliminate stressors that cause dis-ease.
Jenna received her undergraduate degree in sociology at the University of California, Santa Barbara. She continued post graduate studies in nutrition science at Santa Monica College, and functional nutrition studies through Functional Diagnostic Nutrition, receiving her certification as an FDN-P.
As an FDN-P, Jenna helps people uncover hidden stressors leading to chronic inflammation within all systems of the body (nervous, endocrine, digestive, immune, detoxification etc). She uses a holistic approach to healing and empowers her clients to take control of their health. She uses the clients detailed history all the way from pre-conception (using their testimony and in-depth questionnaire assessments), their epigenetic status, bioresonance scanning, and functional labwork (blood, urine, stool, saliva, hair, breath) to assess underlying root causes of chronic health conditions. Jenna believes that the terrain of the body is crucial to health, and focuses on restoring the terrain through deep nutrition, restoring metabolic function, rest, exercise, supplementation, and detoxification.
