This is My Story
My name is Jennifer! I am originally from Spokane, Washington, but I have grown to love The City of Trees. The past four years has been absolutely life changing and filled with happiness! I married my best friend! I am always having new adventures with my little guy who is almost 4! And my husband and I just delievered our second son this past April! Both of my labors have been such a transformative experience. This year, I am excited to dive into my career and grow Mindful Wellness Services with my passions in massage therapy, birth work, and yoga.
I am a Registered Yoga Teacher with my 200-hour certificate and have completed my prenatal yoga teacher training. I am a Certified Birth Doula Certification through DONA International and I am working on my Postpartum Certification through Birth Arts International. I am also enrolled in Massage Therapy School through a local institution Idaho School of Massage Therapy where I will be graduating from the program this month.
In my spare time, I enjoy going to a yoga class and hanging from the side of a cliff rock climbing with my husband (that’s how we met!). Or you can catch me biking around town with my family or rafting down the Payette River! I am always in ‘awe’ of this incredible planet when I backpack through the Sawtooths in the summertime. I believe in healthy and sustainable living. I love mornings listening to vinyls, reading a good book while enjoying a cup of coffee.
I am devoting myself to my dharma, my life’s purpose – the natural law of life’s essence. My experience continues to inspire me to serve in the health and wellness of our community.
So the dream of
Mindful Wellness Services
became a reality.
Birth is not just about making babies. Birth is about making mother’s strong. competent, capable mothers who trust themselves and know their inner strength.
