Jennifer Henderson is committed to overall wellness and leads a health-conscious lifestyle. She has a strong entrepreneurial spirit that led her to form her previous company, Yoga Warrior, in 2008. This experience helped to hone her creative skills and develop a mind for business. After 5 years, Jennifer decided to retire her specialty yoga accessories business to pursue hands-on learning to develop her leadership and communication skills. Jennifer attended the Tea Sommelier Program through the Tea and Herbal Association of Canada, completed her 200 hour Yoga Teacher training as well as successfully received her Natural Holistic Remedies Certification.
In May 2018, Jennifer participated in a local competition called "Start It Up Langley" and ran a very tight race competing against other entrepreneurs looking to bring something special to the local community. Making it into the top two with over 11,000 votes, Jennifer was very close to winning thanks to the tremendous support she received from the community. Although she might not have won the competition, she still walked away a winner as her vision quite quickly became a reality.
Jennifer was inspired to create a company that melded her passions for health and wellness with her love of all things tea. That is how Elevate and Anchor was born.
