Jenny Stasik-Cates is the founder of Journey Haven and Jenny Lynn Coaching + Wellness.  Both businesses were created by Jenny so that people have an opportunity to connect with their own authentic selves, in their own way and time.  A mindful and nature-based approach that integrates a holistic anchor in both businesses.

Jenny comes from a multicultural family, and on her dad’s side, she is first generation born Canadian!  Her dad was born in a concentration camp, and two years later they immigrated from Poland to Canada, after many cruel hardships, that had gone on for many generations, but was the most devasting blow to the family in World War II. Jenny’s maternal side has the prim + proper English, where a great grand father worked in the Royal Stables.  Her Irish heritage boasts a captain, with brave + strong people who landed in Newfoundland to make a new life.  Her French Acadian side are proud fisherman, and the beautiful culture of the Mi’kmaq.

Keeping her culture alive, and diverse with her family + work is very important.  As they had the strength + bond to be diverse and pursure their dreams with family + friends.

A passion for Jenny includes, but is not limited to being a steward of the earth and the people’s advocate, working for both her community and international humanitary efforts. She has coached professionally since 2020, incorporating different modalities and tools to empower each unique person.  Using mindfulness, yoga, astrology, nature therapy, among other tools, to assist in each clients journey.

Jenny is excited also with providing services to the youth in her community through Journey Haven.  Having children connect mindfully, being able to regulate their emotions with better understanding + awareness, and to nature, so that they can find friendships, fun and tools that will be forever used far into their adulthood.

Journey Haven was also founded by her two daughters, who give their own insight and vision into making the program fun and innovative.  Ally being soft spoken has been able to show the youth how to connect to nature in unique ways.  Jaseena doesn’t stop, she ensures that you are kept active, and her sportsmanship skills are shared.
