Amplifying Women's Voices Through Storytelling
Why is storytelling important? Stories have a transformative power to allow us to see the world in a different way than we do if we just encounter it on our own. Stories are an entry point to understanding a different experience of the world. Storytelling – presenting a different perspective of the world – is important when it comes to connecting with each other. It gives us an opportunity to learn from another person’s experience and it can shape, strengthen, or challenge our opinions and values.

    Wonder Woman in Business, Jennifer Hawks

    Jennifer Hawk’s journey began on her grandmothers’ knee when she declared at 5 years old that she wanted to “help people.”  When her younger sister was born and suffered with a difficult to diagnose and treat medical condition that left the whole family frustrated, Jennifer, now 10 years older, witnessed the transformation that occurred once natural and integrative methods were employed. Her desire to “help others” was amplified.

    In 2013, after 10 years working in the traditional medical system in Oncology, Internal Medicine, and Functional Medicine, Jennifer Nelson-Hawks had an opportunity to pursue her passion for Holistic health and wellness and formed Simply Health Collective.  Since that time she has continued to bring her heart and experience into creating a unique space for her clients to take back their health naturally. Jennifer has tirelessly expanded her knowledge and has recently obtained her Board Certification as a Doctor of Naturopathy.  She has also obtained a Board Certification as Holistic Health Practitioner, Iridologist, Holistic Health Coach, IASIS Practitioner as well as Bio-Resonance Practitioner. Through her growing practice and various modalities, she continues to create exceptional client experiences centered on each client's unique health-based needs no matter where in the world they reside.

    When she's not out enjoying all things outdoors, Jennifer shares a home with her husband Chris and their beloved dog Q in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
