My Story

Howdy!

I’m Australian but it’s fun if you say that in a Texan accent.

I’m Jenna Westphal and I’m a certified coach helping women get healthy without deprivation or overwhelm. AKA I still drink wine and coffee, love chocolate and don’t exercise every day (or even every week) — and think you should be able to do the same. The only thing I’ve cut out of my diet is restriction, because life is too short to not eat the cheese platter.

I live in my hometown of Perth, Western Australia with my husband Ben and toddler Connor.

Connor was born in Scotland, where we lived (after moving on a whim) from 2016-2018. Since we’ve been back in Perth, I’ve work in digital marketing and have recently completed my training as a life coach. I’ve been passionate about health and wellness for almost a decade and now love helping other women finding more joy and ease in their lives.

I do this not by focusing on what you are or aren’t eating, but on the foundations of health like getting clear on your values, making your goals specific and do-able, finding ways of staying accountable, building trust with yourself, tuning out your inner critic and going easy on yourself when inevitable bumps in the road pop up.

Apart from everything health and marketing related, I love trashy TV (mostly the Real Housewives of New York #sorrynotsorry), sleeping in (joking, I have a kid), hiking and swimming. FYI, I hate running. Doing a marathon would be my worst nightmare. (But if you have this on your bucket list, woohoo! Just don’t expect me to join you.)

In Paris for my 30th birthday. I ate and drank my body weight in croissants and champagne and loved every minute.

My favourite cities are Edinburgh, Paris and Las Vegas (an ecclectic mix, I’ll admit!).

If you feel like saying hello, I’d love to hear from you here, on my Instagram @jenna.westphal or feel free to shoot me an email — jennawestphal@gmail.com.

Catch you round, sweet friend.

  1. Hi Jenna!
    I am the managing editor of greensmoothieco.com and am hoping you’d be interested in participating in a new feature we are doing monthly.
    Basically, we are contacting various health and wellbeing leaders to offer a chance to blog for the GSC website.
    Could you please email me at erienne@greensmoothieco.com so I can have a chat to you about this?
    Athanae Lucev recommended I get in contact with you 🙂

    Thanks!
