Jennifer Driscoll (Director)

Jennie DriscollI am a degree-qualified naturopath with 20 years industry experience, including clinical practice.  Broad exposure to different facets of business provides me with a strong capability to work cross functionally and with a high level of effective communication.

My career covers diverse experience at Senior Management level, nationally and internationally, within both the Complimentary Health Care and Textiles industries. 

My breadth of experience includes: 

  •          Business, Sales and Marketing Development
  •          Educational event planning and management
  •          Curriculum Development, Course Design, Lecturing, Training
  •          Naturopathic Clinical Practice

For the last 10 years I worked with MediHerb Australia and then Integria Healthcare, as National Sales Manager – responsible for the Practitioner-only brands MediHerb and Eagle Natural Health. 

This role enabled me the great privilege of meeting and working with many practitioners across the country, giving an in depth understanding of the needs, frustrations and aspirations experienced by herbalists and naturopaths in their day to day management and growth of their practices.  

During my time with MediHerb, I was also responsible for the logistical management of high quality educational events and worked closely alongside industry icons Professor Kerry Bone and Simon Mills. This gave me an extensive understanding of herbal medicine from both a traditional use and evidence-based perspective.

Prior to this I worked in a multi-disciplinary clinic for a number of years, before establishing my own successful practice, where I specialised in fertility, women’s health and pre-conception care.

I am currently Program Manager at Think Education (ACNT), where I manage the educational programs for Naturopathy and Western Herbal Medicine.

I am passionate about all aspects of herbal medicine and advancing the support and professionalism of our practitioner industry.
