Jenny Bair, MHE
Living Well Ė Co-Founder
Life Coach and Manager of the Professional Organizing Division
Ms. Bair is the co-founder of Living Well Health and Wellness Center, an integrative medical practice focused on patient-centered care.  Founded in 2005, the team has expanded from 4 to 20+ practitioners.  Ms. Bair has spent the last 20 years teaching, training, consulting, organizing and coaching individuals, couples, families and companies to live and work in "their zones" to make their heart's desires and goals happen.
She has blended her past life of hospital marketing and wellness, healthcare consulting and teaching at the collegiate level, the love of medicine and change together into her integrative medical practice called Living Well Dallas that she co-owns with Betty Murray, RYT, HHC, CN.  She feels pretty darn lucky to work with the team of experts that she shares the space with every day.  Lives are changing under this roof; what a HUGE honor that we all get to share in our client's lives.  She and Betty wanted to open Living Well to change the way healthcare is practiced in our country.  They strive to provide comprehensive, client-centered care, with practitioners that take extra time to get those questions of what happened then? How are you feeling? What do you need right now? and more...truly looking at the whole picture of their lives.  She feels beyond blessed with the honor and privilege to experience the "under belly" of her clients lives to get them to the other side.
Ms. Bair has been involved as a founding pre-charter member, the Education Director, Marketing Director, Vice President, President and Past President twice of the local NAPO chapter from 2003-2008.  She was on the GIG National Conference Planning Board in 2010, Board member & Volunteer Expo Coordinator of the local GIG of Greater Dallas Chapter 2010-2011, and now serves on the Coppell LOVE 146 Task Force.  Ms. Bair is also a member of the ICCA International Christian Coaching Association.
I look forward to seeing everyone at the meeting on Saturday February 7th .
If you are familiar with GF baking, please bring a dish to share with others.  WE need more folks to bake something and bring it.  If you are new to the diet or not comfortable with baking yet, donít feel obligated to bring anything. 
Sometimes the room can be chilly so if you are cold natured you might want to bring a jacket.  Children 10 and over and adults only, please in respect to our speakers.
