Jennifer is the Associate Director of Health Promotion in Campus Wellness. After graduating with a Kinesiology degree she worked in rehabilitation. Through this experience, she became interested in the underlying social and environmental barriers that prevent people from achieving the highest level of health. This prompted her to pursue a Masters of Health Promotion Studies from the University of Alberta. After working in Public Health for 12 years, she came to the University of Waterloo in 2017. Jennifer has a keen interest in promoting holistic health and wellness using a comprehensive approach, namely increasing individuals' knowledge and skills along with implementing supportive environments and healthy public policy. She firmly believes that collaboration and building partnerships is the key to advancing health and building a strong and resilient campus community.
