Hi there, I'm Jenny Mahan. I am a Registered Nurse, providing care to people in their homes throughout northern Wisconsin. I am also a Certified Health and Wellness Coach specializing in Lifestyle and Culinary Medicine, and am passionate about empowering clients to get to the roots of their concerns or health issues, move beyond treating symptoms, and create simple solutions based on their own priorities, goals, strengths, and challenges- to create a healthy lifestyle, not just a fad diet, and reconnect with what matters most to them.
I am also a trained CHEF Coach (Clinicians Culinary Health Education Fundamentals), and facilitate online and in person healthy home cooking classes and group or one on one coaching to support people to reach their health and life goals. I work with clients by phone or online, so location is not an issue.
I live in far northern Wisconsin near the shores of Lake Superior with my husband, Joel Austin, and son Glinden on a tiny spring-fed, Northwoods-shaded tributary of Pine Creek where Joel fly fishes for salmon in the fall, and we garden, raise chickens, make maple syrup, and are building our own small, passive solar, energy efficient home.
I am a Mom, author, avid gardener, and singer-songwriter. I am passionate about promoting local sustainable agriculture and food justice, and enjoy hiking, jogging, hammocking, preserving the harvest from the garden, and a zillion other crafty, DIY, and outdoorsy things.
