Guide to Sacred Wisdom, Jenn.
Now, let's get real.
“A single black silk shirt remains in the closet–the one I gave to my best friend Karen because she loved it so much that I wanted her to have it.
“How the hell did I get here?” I cry as I fall to my knees. I stare at the blouse as a steady stream of tears flow down my face. The hardwood floors of my newly purchased house support my empty body.
How the hell did I get here? is the only thought that comes to mind as I sit slumped over–consumed with grief, betrayal, sadness, and darkness–on the floor of the room where Karen had slept.
“I wanted her to have my shirt, not my husband!” I cry. I pick up the phone to call my mom, but realize there’s no way for me to reach her, and begin to wail in agony. All I want is to be held by my mom, but God has taken her away from me in my deepest, darkest time of need! This thought leads to more tears…
Mourning for my mom makes me want to call Jeff, my husband. This leads to a lack of oxygen to my lungs. Trapped in a vicious circle of deep dark aloneness and grief, I look at myself on the floor. I’m 265 pounds–the heaviest I’ve ever been–and just turned thirty.
I’ve done everything I should have for this perfect life, and now I have to start all over again–by myself–completely alone with no idea how to do it by myself!” (An excerpt from my story in Women Living Consciously II Book)
This was where I found myself over 10 years ago. It was a pretty dark and lifeless place. I remember at one point I was out with my friend for her birthday. In the midst of a table full of people my nose was buried deep into my “crackberry” completely disengaged, ignoring my surrounding and clearly not present. Later, after my husband left one of my friends said “I was wondering what was going on with you. Your joyful demeanor and life filled smile was nonexistent.”
Amazing. I was so cutoff. I was using work, food, excuses and pain to stuff my feelings deep down inside.
Whew… Now several years later I’m re-married, doing work I love and that I can also put down to be present with my husband and friends. I live for today and indulge in the simple pleasures of following what feels good. I have hobbies that involve being outside, and creating and designing beautiful pieces of art. Crazy.
How did I get here?
I chose to explore what the hell was going on with my body. That led to weight loss, which led to better self-care and stronger self-esteem. That led to more life challenges and then putting the weight back on. Which led to further emotional frustrations and more exploration. Each time consuming more and more information to find a way to be pain-free.
I know people like to know what makes an individual able to teach or claim they can help. These are the plethora of certifications I have achieved. Even if things have lapsed, I trust and use the knowledge because it remains with me and all of it is an integral part of my practice today.

Good grief… Listing that even exhausts me! Yes, it’s a lot of knowledge. The funny thing is, I can remember answering the question from a mentor of mine, Dr J Dunn, “So Jenn, what do you want to do?” My answer without skipping a beat, “I want to turn the health and fitness industry on its head.”
So that’s me in a nutshell.
Literally because my married last name is “Almond” – HA! Ok that was funny in my head.
