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 found her health again, and after just three weeks I knew I was heading in the right direction. She was so inspired Jennifer went back to school to study to be a naturopath and aromatherapist.

Jennifer put her specialty into how “day to day” life stressors impact our physical health. Showing up with symptoms like crappy energy, sleep, moods, weight, aches and pains and hormone issues etc. So many of our day to day “ails” are lifestyle stress related.

Turning away from her pharmaceutical management career Jennifer became a passionate naturopath, and for more than 25 years has helped countless individuals improve their lives so they can live their dreams, enjoy life and give back.

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.

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 in more than a dozen countries including Australia, USA, New Zealand and South-East Asia.

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.

Self described as a psychedelic, peace and brown rice loving hippie and a passionate, adventurous traveler, when Jennifer isn’t writing or speaking, she is working towards her goal of owning a complete set of Lonely Planet books, purchasing them only once she has traveled to each place.
