Dr. Jenny’s Bio

As a kid, Dr. Jenny’s favourite tale was Kipling’s story of ‘How The Elephant Got His Trunk’. Like the elephant, she was insatiably curious. It got her into a bit of trouble, like the time she set the kitchen on fire during a chemistry experiment. It also led to a career in medicine; first as Principal of a group medical practice and today as a board-certified lifestyle medicine physician and independent workplace-based health consultant specialising in brain health, mental well-being and psychological safety.

For Dr. Jenny, getting the best out of people doesn’t come from wringing them out like a wet towel, it’s about understanding what really motivates us to work hard, makes us curious to learn, inspires contribution, and how to get along well with others, especially those we don’t consider like ourselves.

Her latest book Thriving Mind sets out to answer “What makes for a good life?” so we can all be
happier, healthier and feel more fulfilled.

When not at work you’ll find her hiking in nature, experimenting in the kitchen, or challenging
her long-standing fear of heights and blue cheese.
