Jennie is a GP working in Newcastle. She came to mindfulness practice as good medicine for herself and to address the increasing stress, from worry and anxiety, she could see in her patients. Jennie has trained in improvisational community theatre and education. Later, she trained in medicine and has worked in paediatrics and general practice, community theatre and education.

Jennie brings this diverse background to her teaching and loves the learning mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) brings to participants and herself. She has run a meditation group for 21 years, maintains an ongoing mindfulness practice and is interested in the application of mindfulness to the messiness of daily life. Her main teachers continue to be her family, community and not burning the rice.
