    Functional Medicine:
    Jen is a functional medicine (nurse) practitioner and teaches clients how to use food and energy as medicine to insource their power to heal versus looking to traditional functional medicine using heavy supplementation.

    Jen has healed all 8 of her own autoimmune conditions/chronic illness using nutritional therapy and energy healing and now teaches others how to experience the same freedom in their bodies. If this way of healing resonates with you feel free to set up a discovery call or intro session on her website.

    Jen is trained through the Institute of Functional Medicine. She specializes in working with autoimmune disorders in both adults and pediatrics, as well as women’s health & hormones throughout preconception, pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period.

    Energy Healing:
    Jen had been following the perfect diet for her chemical makeup, seeing a counselor, and thinking all the positive thoughts, yet something in her still felt “heavy” until she learned about energy healing and the importance of clearing trapped emotions, energy, and trauma from the body causing immune distress. After healing her own vessel, Jen soon learned she had this intuitive healing gift to give others as well.

    Jen utilizes methods of quantum healing touch, splankna, and subconscious healing or hypnosis in her sessions with clients. She specializes in energy healing for chronic illness, sleep disturbances, digestive dysfunction, and children with sensitivities, ADHD, autism, and OCD.

    I am a small town Midwest girl, born and raised in Troy, Missouri. My passion for health and wellness began as a teen, when I decided to dig for the root cause of my lifelong digestive issues. This time in my life caused me to develop a passion for health and wellness rooted in a holistic view of the body. I continued learning about natural physiology and its functioning the way God intended. I became determined to live a cleaner lifestyle, which led me to start making and selling my own clean beauty and personal products in high school and college. My desire to be a part of the holistic healthcare solution led me to pursue Chiropractic as a career.

    Throughout my time pursuing my doctorate and extracurricular training in acupuncture and functional medicine, I, like so many women feeling the pressure of high achievements, found myself suffering from chronic stress, adrenal insufficiency, hormone imbalance, hypothyroidism, and fatigue. I finished my academic career in, what I felt was a completely different body than what I began with, and this led me to develop my passion to help other women recover from burn out and honor their feminine physiology.

    I attended Williams Baptist University in Walnut Ridge, AR, before transferring to Logan University to complete both my Bachelor of Science degree in Life Sciences, and my Doctorate in Chiropractic.

    During my time at Logan University, I completed multiple additional hours of education outside of my Doctoral course work. I have completed training in Functional Medicine, Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine, Sacro-Occipital Technique, Pregnancy & Pediatric Chiropractic Care, Webster Technique, and the McKenzie Technique.

    I opened my dream practice, Abide Functional Wellness, in June of 2022, where I serve clients in-person in Shawnee, KS, inside Your Wellness Connection, and also virtually.

    My incredibly supportive husband Graham, a college wrestling coach, and I currently live in Leawood, KS with our Dane-Shepherd mix, Gus, and enjoy serving in our church together, traveling, and visiting the amazing coffee shops and restaurant patios in the Kansas City area when it’s not wrestling season!
