She is a certified personal trainer and coach and earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Education and Health Promotion and a Masters Degree in Exercise Science.
Jenny began her running journey overweight and unable to make it to the end of the block. Her unique approach to coaching draws from her struggles to get started, lose over 30 pounds, reach the finish line of a her first 5K and go on to qualify for the Boston Marathon.
Jenny practices what she preaches and is an accomplished endurance athlete, having competed in over forty marathons all over the world including the Boston Marathon, the Antarctica Marathon and Mark Burnett’s Eco-Challenge Expedition. Her curiosity to find out what is around the next corner continues to fuel her adventures to explore the world under her own power.
Running changed Jenny's life. She fell in love with the process of training, quit her job in corporate fitness, and has been coaching, competing and writing every since. She loves to learn and teach and lives for helping people accomplish goals they never thought they could.
