About Jenn Hand
Jenn Hand has a diverse and unique background. She pursued her undergraduate degree from the Pennsylvania State University in Advertising and Public Relations (thinking an ad agency would be all creative brainstorming sessions and idea marathons-wrong!). Following graduation, she knew she didn’t want to work at an agency, and she needed space and time to figure out “what she wanted to do with her life”.
So, she spent a year in Thailand teaching English and running language camps for Thai children. She still didn’t know her "life calling”, but upon her return to the US, she DID know that she wanted to help people.
Her aspirations to better the community propelled her into the nonprofit world, where she worked as the Volunteer Program Director at a residential facility for handicapped children and adults outside of Philadelphia.
After four years of working with volunteers, she took her services abroad and became a project lead with the Red Cross in Quito. She served as a nutrition advocate and after school tutor in various regions of Ecuador. While traveling through South America, she decided to pursue a graduate education in holistic nutrition. She attended Clayton College of Natural Health and studied nutrition, integrated weight management, stress and health related diseases, general physiology, biochemical individuality, and other holistic health related topics.
