Hi! I'm Jen
And I am SO happy you are looking to find balance and health in your life!
From a very young age, I knew I wanted to help others. Growing up with a chronically ill mother I was exposed to the medical system on a daily basis. Growing up around painkillers and prescriptions, doctors and homecareworkers, studying nursing seemed like the obvious career path.
Having worked in long term and palliative care facilities, as well as home care and doctor’s offices, I have witnessed people in all stages of health, illness, birth, and death. Through my experiences, I saw that while conventional medical therapies did save many lives, there was a disturbing trend of over -medicating and under- nourishing. I came to a troubling conclusion; the system I was working for was not, in fact, a health care system but rather an illness treatment system. I wondered “Why not try to maintain one’s health BEFORE illness, rather than wait until it was too late?”
My search for a more holistic form of medicine brought me to MacEwan University’s Acupuncture program, and while reading my first text on the modality, I knew I had found my Dharma (life’s purpose).
