Jen Wright, MBA, ERYT500, C-IAYT, is a founding partner at REAL Human Performance and specializes in stress management, performance optimization and resiliency training. Jen serves those that serve. Jen spent over a decade facilitating human performance optimization strategies at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, Defense Sciences Office and later the Air Force Research Laboratory, Human Performance Wing prior to directing local programs and clinical research of chronic stress, addiction recovery and resiliency skills.
While working in a post–9/11 environment, Jen researched and integrated alternative practices personally and professionally. Seeing an ever-evolving connection between medical and alternative treatments, Jen secured grants to further the clinical understanding and outcomes of the mindbody interventions.
She brought Mindful Yoga Therapy (MYT) to Cincinnati and as a VA Research Associate, she instructs trauma-informed programs across Cincinnati VA facilities, including clinical research trials at VA Medical Center Trauma Recovery Center (residential PTSD and TBI programs), substance abuse recovery facilities for veterans in transition and outpatient programs for VA Mental Health Care, Women’s Health and Hamilton County Veterans Treatment Court. Recently this program was expanded to Juvenile Court and residential treatment programs for at-risk youth. Jen instructs and leads evaluation studies of self-care and resilience protocols for mental health professionals as well as cognitive and mental strengths training to professional organizations like the NFL. MYT is a foundation for all of this work and is presented at research conferences and is featured across local news outlets and nationally with the Huffington Post and NPR.
