I am Dr Sonya Jensen ND.A Mom of 2 boys, a business owner, a yoga teacher, a workshop leader and a Women’s Health Expert. After years of working closely with Women and their families my mission and purpose has become clear, to ignite Women’s potential so they can strive to be the best version of themselves.
I am a graduate of British Columbia’s Simon Fraser University where I received a degree in Cell and Molecular Biology. Pulled in the direction of helping others since the age of 5, I decided to pursue Naturopathic Medicine after University to explore the body’s healing potential and learn how to share it with patients.
My work with Women has taken me to places like Haiti where I assisted a group of Naturopathic doctor students through an organization called Mama Baby Haiti to provide maternal and pediatric health care at a birth centre in Mourne Rouge. This experience solidified that my passion lies in working with women and their families. I now run monthly workshops for Women to support them in all aspects of life in Vancouver BC.
In 2009, my husband (Dr. Nicholas Jensen) and I opened Divine Elements Naturopathic Family Wellness in the Kitsilano neighborhood of Vancouver, British Columbia where we help clients create lasting changes in their overall health and well-being for the entire family.
What I love about getting together to do these podcasts is the idea of building a community of Women that support and elevate each other to be the best version of themselves. I love that I get to work with and learn from 2 amazing Women as we come together to create this tribe so other Women can live health and joyful lives!
3 Things you should know about me:
- I am a surfer… Even in the frigid Pacific Waters of British Columbia. I am hard core that way.
- I have quite the travel bug. Not only do my husband and I travel around the USA and Canada for seminars, we have also traveled to Hatti, Taiwan, Thailand, Cambodia, Cost Rica, Mexico, Hawaii, Nicaragua and India where I climbed the Himalayas.
- I am constantly listening to “poop talk” along with having to explain my “missing penis….” to my two young boys. You can say there is never a dull moment. But despite all the craziness it has made me realize that I am my Son’s first relationship to the opposite gender and therefore have to teach them how to treat women by treating myself well.
