In training to be a dancer and later a musician, Jenny has personal experience in the physical challenges of these disciplines, and solving the associated injuries (of which she had many!) spurred her interest in studying physiotherapy. She practiced for many years in various fields, sometimes part-time whilst pursuing a career in music.
Motherhood and an aged care facility around the corner from the local school prompted her introduction to working with the elderly in care, an area which she very much enjoys. After many years working exclusively in this field, she was keen to return to some work in the community, an area which she greatly enjoyed in the 80s when working with mothers and babies in their homes.
