Jen has over 30 years of experience in the field of Health and Wellness. She is an adjunct faculty at MUIH with a passion for teaching on campus and in particular, helping students succeed with the sometimes-daunting class ISCI522- Foundations in Organic Chemistry.
Jen is a lifelong learner and teacher. Her philosophy is to bring an eager mind, open heart, and compassion for herself and others. Her aim is to teach, learn from, and communicate with every being in the class/room using the utmost respect at all times as she invites the same from each one of her students. Jennifer is a member of the Institute for Functional Medicine, the American Nutrition Association, and Yoga Alliance. She has presented to several classes at The Maya Angelou Academy, and lectures yearly at Adelante Latina in Baltimore. She continues to serve the community of MD and Greater Baltimore volunteering at Maryland Therapeutic Riding, and mentoring while continuing to see clients for Clinical Nutrition-Education and Massage Therapy at her practice in Mt. Washington, Baltimore.

Best Massage Therapist, Baltimore City Paper 2012
I am interested in all things nature, nerdy, and sporty. I love playing tennis and cycling; I cycled across the United States in 2020 (Santa Barbara, CA, to Myrtle Beach, SC). I am a self-taught singer/songwriter with two solo releases on Spotify. I am recently learning primitive skills, and enjoy spending summers traveling due to my love of language and strong desire to see the world. I am the parent and guardian of my 12-year-old nephew, and hope to take him to Greece this summer!
I, like Dr. Camille Freeman, am “fascinated by the human body.” My favorite books are The Body Keeps the Score by Bessel van der Kolk, The Book of Awakening by Mark Nepo, and while I don’t like much fiction, I really enjoy Haruki Murakami. As far as food goes, I can always get down with munching on some red cabbage stir fry, sliced avocado and a sunny-side-up egg!
