✨Meet the Crew ✨
Our COO (Chief Operation Officer) Jenny
🧡My WR Mahi...
I'm so stoked to be part of the Wellness Riders team. My mahi for this awesome company is all related to the skills and experience I have gathered from 20 years of working in sports. I started off helping out where I could, assisting the coaches at skate sessions, and now I manage the operational side of the business. I like to think of myself as the 'get the house in order' person, who can help tidy things up, make sure we have processes in place so things run smoothly and safely, allowing the rest of the team to shine in their roles without worrying about the 'boring' stuff!
🧡 My boardsports journey…
I came to boardsports later in life as I grew up around more traditional activities like tennis and football. I had a surf lesson in my early 20's, followed by a snowboard holiday with friends. Then I had some kitesurf lessons (and have been an eternal beginner in that sport for over 10 years!), then I started paddleboarding in my mid/late 20's and then finally skateboarding in my 30's!
🧡Reasons you love boardsports…
I think it must be the connection to nature - water, mountains, the outside air, plus the flow/mindfulness that concentrating so hard on something creates, and finally the sense of satisfaction that you've got out there and done something cool!
🧡What other ways do you cherish (manaaki) yourself? (personal wellbeing)
I’m so mindful of taking care of myself physically and mentally. I set pretty strict boundaries so I know I'm not rushing around trying to do a million things in one day. I love to exercise and that could be a quick HIIT, or yoga session on youtube, but my favourite is running with my dog Bo (and husband Shaun) through the forest or at a local Parkrun. My ideal day starts with a beach walk and a dip in the sea (even in winter!) I read every day before I go to sleep, eat chocolate every day, and go to bed pretty early each day too!
🧡What does being a part of the Wellness Riders Crew bring to your life?
Getting to know Gina and Sarinah and the rest of the WR crew has meant so much to me. To be part of this crew inspires me every day that you can create a life where your passions and interests can be your life - not just a thing on the side or on your to do list. I love the values that we share around empowering women like me to get out there and give it a go, and giving women the confidence to try things that are a little different from societal expectations!
