Jenna recently joined SMI after moving here from Minneapolis, MN. She attended Saint Olaf College in Northfield, MN where she obtained her bachelor’s degree in Biology and Education. After experiencing a few running related injuries, she decided to go to chiropractic school because she saw the need for hands-on work in management and prevention of injury. Jenna graduated from Northwestern Health Sciences in Minnesota in 2005 as a doctor of chiropractic. Additionally, while in school, she started her certification in Active Release Techniques (ART) and it has since been her primary form of treatment. She has worked at various Ironman events, local triathlons, and has spoken to running groups about injury. Jenna has experience working with athletes of all different abilities from someone who is just getting started to the professional athlete/performer and also people who experience symptoms related to the repetitive stress of their daily lives like sitting, typing, and carrying children.
Being a competitive runner herself, she enjoys helping people stay active and assisting them in achieving their own personal goals. She has coached at the high school, college, and community levels. She ran in the USA Olympic Trials marathon in 2008 and 2012 and hopes to qualify again for the 2016 trials.
