Jennifer also graduated from the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic in Bournemouth and joined the clinic in 2014. She decided to pursue a career in Chiropractic after seeing her mother suffering from recurrent episodes of lower back pain over many years. With the episodes getting more and more frequent, Jennifer saw the frustration of her mother in not knowing why she was repeatedly getting this pain. This led her to have a keen interest in preventative and rehabilitative work, through Chiropractic treatment, to decrease the predisposition of individuals to chronic pain.
Jennifer has done courses in Sacro-occipital Technique and Dry Needling. She plays netball in a local league as well as training at the gym to keep fit.
