"I have been going to Jen for 3 years and she has helped me to lose 20 pounds within the last year. I have been able to keep it off where in the past I would have put it right back on. She worked with me to set realistic goals and change my relationship with food. Jen’s nutrition plans have many options and I never feel restricted on them. Additionally, she helped pave the way for my long term health by showing how to choose the correct food and not by just putting me on a restrictive diet. Jen goes above and beyond to help me achieve my goals. She is always encouraging and she makes you feel welcome within the first minutes of talking with her. Jen also makes the workouts go by so fast with her encouraging words.She does an amazing job at modifying workouts, so that everyone’s needs are met. I recommend Jen to everyone I meet. She is truly a wonderful person and cares very deeply about all of her clients."
