Jenna McDonald is Co-founder and Practitioner of The Acupuncture Company. Growing up in Tuakau, New Zealand, and leading an active and outdoor lifestyle, it was a natural progression for Jenna to become involved in the fitness industry. Through this, she developed a passion for supporting people’s health and happiness. Having already achieved a Bachelor of Physical Education, she went on to study a Bachelor of Health Science (Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine), and from this co-founded the Acupuncture Company, in Brighton, which prides itself on helping people to live the happiest, healthiest life possible, through natural healthcare.
Jenna is a two-time Ironman triathlon finisher, marathon finisher, tramper and passionate traveller. She is engaged to Lilyroo Fund fellow committee member Andrew Greig, and on May 2nd 2014 their son Felix was born at The Women’s at Sandringham.
“Expecting Lily to be born a few months after my own child, I had already imagined a long, and adventure filled life for Lily, as our children grew up together. After Lily passed away, Pete shared with me the equipment needs of the Royal Women’s Hospital NISC unit. Although the Women’s lacks for nothing in terms of the love and emotional care for the patients and their families, there is a long list of equipment needs and only a limited Government budget. It is important to me that Lily’s memory lives on, and the Lilyroo Fund seemed a fitting and powerful way to do this. It is an honour to be part of something which is creating hope and increasing the chances of a premature baby going home with Mum and Dad.”
With Jenna on the committee we have every chance of achieving this.
