Article_seven_photo.jpgGetting to know LBG staff and members - Jennifer (Jen) Saunders

Name: Jennifer (Jen) Saunders

Position: Associate Director, LBG

How long have you been an LBG team member?  I joined the company in April so just on 5 months now.

Describe your job in one sentence: Data queen - I support our member’s in getting their CCI data uploaded via LBG Online and guide them through the verification process.

Career highlight to date: I have been lucky enough to have the opportunity to live and work in a number of countries including Japan, China, Korea, UK and USA, meeting wonderful people and experiencing beautiful cultures.

Advice for new LBG members:  Don’t be overwhelmed by the process, instead start off small by trying to capture the majority of your data. Most certainly with interpreting the guidance, draw your line in the sand and go from there. Remember it’s all about measurement, the members and the movement and we are always here to help with advice!

Three things you can’t live without: My family and friends, my MELT method foam roller (www.meltmethod.com) and my phone.

What’s on your bucket list? I love to travel! Some things I would still like to see and visit are the Northern Lights, Vietnam and Spain.

What is the last book you read/movie you watched? Leading Mindfully by Amanda Sinclair

Where is your dream holiday location and why? After lots of travel and moving about my dream holiday location is actually my house at the moment. Having home cooked meals and going on bike rides around the neighbourhood with the family.

What do you feel most passionate about? I am passionate about early childhood care and education. In some of my volunteering roles I have had the privilege to see first-hand the guidance and quest for freedom of spirit that allows for little minds and bodies to develop into wonderful community minded people.
