Jennifer Grant | MBA
Director of Events & Program Facilitation

Jen is most inspired to guide the next generation to recognize that they already have everything they need within themselves to be happy.

Jen teaches children, youth, and adults mindful practices, the science of how our brains and bodies work, and brain empowerment strategies—the valuable life skills she wishes someone had taught her when she was a kid. Jen is an MBA who draws upon 20 years of experience working with some of Canada’s largest sports, corporate and charitable organizations to introduce these wise teachings that continue to transform her own life.

David Zarnett | Ph.D.
Director of Strategy & Research

David is the Undergraduate Advisor in the Department of Political Science at the University of Toronto, from where he received a Ph.D in 2017.  His work supports students as they address challenges in school and as they prepare for life after graduation. Through his work on campus, including as a lecturer and teaching assistant, he has witnessed a deteriorating mental health situation. He is passionate about providing students with the support and guidance they need to reach their potential.  

He is also one of the last human beings on the planet who isn’t attached to a smart phone and only uses one reluctantly for emergencies and other necessary communication. (not for co-workers) 🙂
