The purpose of life isn’t just to live, but to thrive

Jennifer Jefferies is The Present Day Wise Woman, one of Australia’s most respected authors and speakers in the area of health and wellbeing, working closely with some of the world’s most well known brands to restore work life balance and minimise presenteeism and absenteeism in their organisations.

Experiencing corporate burnout in her 20’s, eventually a car accident stopped her in her tracks and she knew she could not go back to the way she had been living and working. It was through natural therapies that she was able to rise out of adrenal burnout. Jennifer was so inspired; she went back to school to study to be a naturopath specialising into how “day to day” life stressors impact our physical, emotional and mental health.

Subscribing to the philosophy that wealth and success mean nothing without your health, Jennifer authored the 7 Steps to Sanity and thirteen other health-related titles, sharing practical real-life strategies to help teams and individuals improve their health, wellbeing and productivity by finding balance in their lives. Jennifer is also the host of Healthy Life Hacks Podcast and co-host of Smart Sassy Seniors Podcast with her wife Alice.

At 62, Jennifer has more than 3 decades of experience and is The Present-Day Wise Woman. The realistic health practitioner and speaker for today’s workplace and world.

Jennifer is known for her fun, humorous, no-nonsense approach to healthy living, and her proven ability to motivate others to make positive changes to their lives both inside and outside the workplace, Jennifer is a highly sought after presenter, speaking to corporations globally for more than twenty years.

Self-described as a psychedelic, peace and brown rice loving hippie and a passionate, adventurous traveler, when Jennifer isn’t writing or speaking, you will find her surfing or gardening and focused to help leave the world a better place.

Determined to leave the world a better place, Jennifer has also established The Q Foundation to give health, hope and happiness to children in poverty stricken countries through providing education, health care, accommodation and welfare services.
