About Me

Jenn Bruer

I reside in the suburb of Mississauga, Ontario with my wife and children. I am a counsellor, retired foster parent after 18 years of service, a burnout prevention and recovery speaker, mindfulness teacher, transformation coach, keto diet proponent, and parenting coach among other hats I passionately wear.

My Story

I have been on a path to burnout recovery, health, and healing since 2011 and now I encourage others toward a similar path of health and wellness.


I am also the parent of a son diagnosed with autism and was a foster parent for over 18 years. Now, armed with tangible parenting strategies,  I support other parents who may be experiencing parenting challenges.


I am a mindfulness teacher, curriculum writer, Board member of Canadian charitable organization Mindfulness Everyday®, and an advisory board member for MindfulReach.


I facilitate training workshops, coaching, and groups on topics like burnout recovery, stress management, mindfulness, sleep cycle hygiene and the circadian rhythm, parenting, foster parenting, the paleo diet, the keto diet, and a few other themes that I feel passionate about. 


I am a advocate for burnout prevention and recovery especially within helping fields. I believe a cultural shift is desperately needed and I want the world to know how undervalued professional helpers are. Professional helpers need more respect, funding, resources, and innovation. Simply put, our world needs to place more value on its helpers.


In my spare time I enjoy hiking among the trees, biking, writing, gardening, yoga, meditation, reading and, of course, cooking 🙂
