Ongoing education is a primary goal for Jennifer:

  • Post graduate courses in Orofacial Myology with the AOMT and the IAOM.

Jennifer used that insight and studied to become a certified Buteyko educator.
  • Additionally she has taken Cranial Nerve Integration Level One with Dr. Lois Laynee to better understand the breathing connection and the autonomic nervous system.
  • Jennifer’s passion for early root causes prompted her take infant feeding courses, frenum assessment classes and Level 1 and 2 Reflex Integration course with The RMTI.
  • To have a further understanding of the whole body connection she has taken courses in myofascial release.
  • As part of her ongoing education Jennifer attends annual meetings with Academy of Applied Myofunctional Sciences and American Academy of Physiological Medicine and Dentistry

Jennifer’s curiosity drives her to seek out, and learn from top leaders in their respective fields. If she identifies a knowledge gap she will find the right professional specialist, because first and foremost she believes collaboration is the best approach for a holistic treatment plan.

Following her quest for knowledge, Jennifer enrolled in post-graduate work for orofacial disorders, and Myofunctional Therapy.
