Jen’s creativity and strong intuition set her apart. On her journey of embodiment, practicing yoga and receiving insightful bodywork have made all the difference and have led her toward greater awareness, skillfulness, and compassion. She enjoys sharing these tools with others and feels honored to be a teacher and guide.

Jen has been doing yoga since 2004 and teaching since 2010. She completed her 200-hr teacher training with Kelly Golden at The Glowing Body in 2011. Since then, she has accumulated over 1000 hours of teaching experience and has gleaned inspiration from a variety of teachers including Richard Rosen, and Katy Bowman. Jen retired from teaching weekly group classes in 2017. She now offers specialized workshops, continuing education classes for other yoga instructors, and one-on-one yoga sessions that help her clients integrate self-care and movement practices into their daily lives.

Building on her experience and practice as a yoga teacher, Jen graduated from the Tennessee School of Therapeutic Massage in 2012 and completed her Reflexology training later that year. Since then she has studied myofascial release, Ashiatsu, Thai massage, and Maori Romi Romi healing. Jen is also a Reiki Master/Teacher. She integrates all these techniques, along with her experience as a yogi, in her bodywork practice at Glowing Body.

When she’s not helping her clients be well and feel swell, Jen can be found hanging out with her husband and two young kids, cooking delicious vegetarian food, or tending her burgeoning garden.
