About Dr Jenny
I am passionate about people, performance
and practical solutions that improve our
cognitive health and wellbeing.
As a kid, my favourite tale was Rudyard Kipling’s story of ‘How The Elephant Got His Trunk. Like the elephant I was insatiably curious about the world. I wanted to know how things worked, why things were ‘Just So.’ It got me into a bit of trouble too, like the time I set fire to the kitchen and the time I caused the ceiling in the family room to collapse after flooding the bathroom.
My curiosity led me to develop a sense of awe and wonder about the human body and why sometimes things went wrong. I’ve spent my life looking after the health and wellbeing of others, first as the Principal of a group medical practice and then from my workplace-based consultancy Brain Fit established in 2009 specialising in brain health, mental wellbeing and social connection.
As a keynote speaker I have presented to and worked with thousands of people to empower them to cultivate their own thriving mind, what it takes to stay well, think smart and stay safe.
What gets me out of bed in the morning is the opportunity to impact someone else’s world, seeing the spark of insight in their eyes when they ‘get’ what they can do for themselves. As a voracious reader and prolific writer, I continue to indulge my curiosity and have just published my fourth book Thriving Mind: How to Cultivate a Good Life (Wiley)
As a board-certified lifestyle medicine physician and best-selling author my vision is to enable everyone to be a happy, thriving human. I’ve always believed that while knowledge is power, it’s knowing how to apply that knowledge that is the gold. My goal is to create safe and positive environments where everyone can learn, upskill and enjoy what they do, whether it’s studying at school or university, working for themselves or working for an employer.
When you have the 3 skillsets required to truly thrive; emotional stability and mental wellbeing combined with great physical and social health it becomes possible to bring your best self to everything you do, consistently.
If I can influence and inspire even one person, whether through a book I’ve authored, a program I’ve delivered, a workshop I’ve facilitated or keynote given at a conference to know they have what it takes to be happy, healthy and socially connected I’ll know I’ve achieved success. Because as every one person gains the knowledge, understanding and takes the first step to cultivating a good life they create a positive ripple that can spread far and wide.
Because my greatest strength is a love of learning and being of service to others I’m in my happy place when reading, researching and sharing the latest insights from the neuroscience, positive psychology and behavioural science.
When not out and about presenting or training you’ll find me either out walking our dogs, swing dancing, cuddled up with a book on the sofa, hiking in nature, experimenting with new recipes in the kitchen or going on an adventure in the outback.
