Since the inception of Urban Spa, Jennifer has been committed to building a business with integrity and compassion. She was raised with an awareness of social justice from her Anglican minister mother, and a strong business sense, from her banker father. They inspired her to create social change through business. Jennifer’s early experiences made her aware that there were global problems that needed solving. As a teenager, she sailed from the Bahamas to Florida and witnessed the world’s plastic pollution problem in our oceans floating all around her boat. The sheer amount of trash in our seas was devastating for her to see. Then, when she was pregnant with her daughter twenty-five years ago, she became aware of toxins in our food and personal-care products. Jennifer’s instinct was to protect her daughter and the next generation. She started to understand the impact these issues have on our lives, and how many people shared her desire to do things differently.
Jennifer’s journey galvanized her to build a brand that would protect human health and our ecosystems. Her commitment to create meaningful change is embedded in her mission for Urban Spa: empowering consumers to eliminate plastic with high performing natural products. urbanspa.ca | @urbanspa_natural
