I’m on a mission to help women thrive in midlife. And whether you’re looking to understand what’s happening with your hormones, or want help finding food freedom, I’m here to help you find the confidence you deserve in perimenopause and menopause.
My passion for women’s health comes from my own experiences. As a mother, and woman in perimenopause, I understand what it’s like to be in this stage of life! We expect a lot of ourselves and a lot is expected of us. We’re hard-wired to be resilient and roll with the punches but hormonal changes mean that we’re swimming in a new “hormonal soup’ by the time we’re in our 40s (at the latest!) that can make coping with change more difficult than it’s ever been. Add kids, work, aging parents, and other stressors into the soup and it’s easy to see how it can be overwhelming.
Have you noticed that one of the biggest challenges many women face in this transition is the new and unfamiliar body changes? It can be hard to understand why “nothing is working” and weight gain seems inevitable. Like so many women, I began dieting at a young age and went on to become a “professional dieter”. I longed to see the “thin ideal” staring back at me in the mirror for most of my adult years. But despite doing all the “right” things, exercising, trying every new diet, AND getting two degrees related to nutrition, my body fought back.
Thankfully the seeds of “intuitive eating” were planted somewhere along the way and I began making small shifts in how I responded to my body’s needs. I no longer wanted to push my body to its limits, I wanted to nurture it to its best. And I want to help you do the same!
Born and raised in the Atlantic provinces of Canada, I’m a Mom to 3 kids (including a set of twins) and love my cats almost as much as my kids.
“I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Jenn and this wonderful program! She is so knowledgeable and so real - these are hard concepts to accept after a lifetime of diet culture indoctrination, but she excels at making them understandable and relatable.”
"For the first time in my 48 years, I now feel free from food obsessions and diet culture.
I have learned how to attune myself with a healthier mindset, instead of constantly thinking about food, freeing myself from the guilt that it's my fault I can't lose weight, and I have started a journey on positive self body image.
