Hello – I’m Jenn Dougherty owner of Natural Advantage Wellness. I’m a mom, healthcare provider of 25 years, lover of food as medicine, essential oils as natural solutions, and believer that 95% of healthcare is prevention & self-care.

You’ve heard the phrases: Health is Wealth and Knowledge is Power! – Natural Advantage Wellness puts these 2 concepts together!

Empowering people through education is why I began NAWellness. I share empowering tools for women, families, and athletes to take charge of your wellness goals in the areas of lifestyle medicine, athletic injury prevention / sports recovery, and plants or food for healing. I promote blending natural approaches with western medical tools for true integrative care! I believe a BALANCED approach is key! Yes, I’m also an optimist/idealist – I embrace the lens through which I see the world 😉

  • As an Athletic Trainer, I am steeped in the belief of prevention, movement as medicine, and our health dictates our quality of life.
  • As a Certified Health Coach, I share practical tips for creating balance in these core elements of health: mindset, nutrition, exercise, and restoration.
  • As a Certified Essential Oil coach and doTERRA Wellness Advocate, I offer powerful plant extracted solutions to support optimal wellness.

Thanks for coming to the site and I hope you find the information and services to be helpful in your wellness journey.
