Jennifer Young (known by many as ‘Jen Y’ because she’s a member of Generation Y/Millennial Generation) is a Leadership Development Consultant, accredited Ovio Mindfulness Facilitator, NeuroLeadership Institute trained Coach and Writer.

Without realising it, Jen Y has been practising mindfulness and yoga from a young age thanks to her mother teaching her these techniques at primary school age. However, it wasn’t until experiencing high stress and anxiety while studying law at university that she was formally introduced to the benefits of regular yoga practice and meditation by a mentor. These practices were invaluable in helping her cope with a transformative few years after graduating, going on a 21 day Outward Bound course, changing career direction and founding ‘Jen Y Insights’ in 2016.

In her spare time she volunteers her time with Camp Quality and Rotary Youth Leadership Awards programme, spends as much time walking outside with friends and dogs as possible and regularly blogs about youth leadership development, the changing nature of work and mindfulness.
