I’m Jenna and you can Find Your Active with me, in and around Braintree!

My work with local jobcentres has really highlighted the importance of community and how local activities can change people’s lives for the better. This is what propelled me into wanting to become a Community Connector.

The Find Your Active campaign is a positive platform to promote local activities to the community and help encourage and engage residents across Braintree to get active and to interact with other people in their community.

In this role I hope to create great connections between local businesses and organisations and make them easily accessible for the community. I want to create a positive and inclusive environment that we can all use to help benefit one another on our physical activity journeys.

When I was younger, I used to suffer with painful knees, after a visit to my GP he suggested some exercises, my mind exploded with the possibility that exercise can help with pain. I spent three years studying anatomy and physiology, I worked alongside health care professionals, and I now have my own sports massage clinic so I can help others with their pain.

My favourite activities include kayaking as well as dog walking, I find both relaxing and fun for me to do in my spare time. I look forward to meeting others in my community and helping them to find activities that suit their lives and that they will really enjoy.
