More about Jen:
As a self-proclaimed “mover”, Jen has spent more than 2/3 of her life upside down. She graduated with a B.S. in Kinesiology, and received her DPT degree from Loma Linda University. After schooling, she went on to accept a job at VERT Sports Therapy and Rehabilitation in Santa Monica.
Through VERT and furthering her education, she was able to meet some amazing individuals who further fueled the expansion of her knowledge base. She studied the Myodetox methodology directly under co-founder, Vinh Pham, took a RockTape course with The Movement Maestro herself, and learned from so many other brilliant minds in the rehab game.
Nowadays, she offers private sports therapy, online programs, workshops and speaks at global engagements, attracting audiences from stay-at-home moms to Hollywood actors and Olympic athletes. Her mission is to help those who are willing to listen to their body, reverse aging, eliminate pain and establish sustainable health.
