Jenn is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, licensed with the state of Montana. She is also a Certified Lactation Counselor and has a background in western herbalism and energy medicine.
Jenn believes in the healing power of growing plants, digging in the dirt and eating a whole foods diet. In 2003, she started Soil for Health. Jenn taught families how to compost, plant gardens and cook healthier meals. Clients had so many health and nutrition questions, Jenn decided to pursue a formal nutrition education at Metropolitan State University of Denver.
Jenn completed her nutrition training through the Montana State University Dietetic Internship. With an emphasis in Sustainable Food Systems, Jenn was able to integrate her gardening background with her nutrition credentials. She was featured in Hagerstown Magazine for her work at a community garden and helped establish school gardens that reached hundreds of students in Washington County, Maryland. She continues to support small farms, grow her own food and promote a sustainable food system that makes the healthy choice the easy choice.
As a child, Jenn had a variety of chronic ailments that did not respond to conventional medicine. Over time, Jenn found numerous “alternative” modalities that changed her traditional eating pattern. The dietary changes combined with herbal remedies and energy work were life changing. Jenn looks forward to helping Red Willow clients benefit from nutrition counseling, as well as the many modalities offered here, to feel better, increase energy and achieve health goals.
Jenn has a particular interest in working with people who are seeking to heal – not just manage symptoms, are managing an illness with a medical diet, want to improve their relationship with food, or believe their diet might hold the key to feeling better and living longer.
Jenn also has a son who loves lacrosse and teaches many student athletes at the University of Montana. She has developed a program to help these young athletes modify their diets for optimal athletic performance and lifelong nutrition
