Jennifer grew up in Malibu and Benedict Canyon and has been drawn to the calming effects of the ocean and the mountains ever since. She believes that nature is our greatest teacher. The natural world outside mirrors the simplicity, depth and beauty of our already wise interior.
She was always a good student and ended up graduating from Stanford University. Before embarking on a career in acting, she did a stint at Hollywood Park racetrack organizing the Breeders Cup horse races, and cooked at Wolfgang Puck’s Spago. Her first big acting job was in Aaron Spelling’s Beverly Hills, 90210, and she went on to appear in Friends, Ellen, CSI, and several feature films. She wrote a few magazine articles and also the book Good Stuff: A Reminiscence of My Father, Cary Grant (published by Alfred A. Knopf), in 2011. During her life as an actor and writer, yoga, meditation and dance were her daily corner stones.
Yoga trained her in fortitude and the art of transitions. Mindfulness put her in touch with a deep stillness. Dance helped her to unspool old stories and freed her to inhabit my own innate wisdom.
"I think Jennifer has a gift in the area of the mindfulness practice, and can work with all ages--teaching them to tune into their body and connect with their inner worlds. When you are in her presence there is no question that she knows a lot about this practice and can artfully demonstrate it and teach it to both adults and children. "
