Jennifer's inspiration: I see inspiration as essential to creativity and exploring new possibilities and essential to a framework of lifelong learning. Working to change attitudes and achieve health equity is a huge goal of mine, and empowering women to be partners in their health is vitally important. I am inspired by people I meet on life’s journey, patients who are inspired by the power of storytelling to change the narrative on health. My hope is to have everyone see their health (especially heart health) as their greatest asset. Prevention of disease, health education and health equity are also areas of focus. Overall I consider myself a lifelong learner and strive to learn from every person and every situation. I believe that we all inspire each other and everyone brings a piece to the puzzle of life.
