Meet the Board of Directors
Jennifer Ledbetter, Founder and President, Reiki Master
Jennifer Ledbetter is the founder and president of Caregivers Wellness Foundation (CWF), a 501 c (3) non-profit organization, dba A New Day Studios. She was introduced to energy medicine by her Mother and she has been practicing energy medicine since she was a young teen. It was through this early training that Jennifer embraced The All who serve “Sacred Fire”, which guides her to this day. Jennifer is a wife, mother of three, and grandmother of nine grandchildren.
In 2017, after many years of serving the public through free weekly Reiki clinics, Jennifer established CWF. Her current mission is the expansion of affordable, integrative, wellness-care options to our Mid-South community, including the underserved.
Jennifer shines a gentle bright light into the hearts and minds of those around her, inspiring students to bring their best healing presence to the community. This light establishes confidence, coherence, and Divine alignment within the practitioners and those they serve.
Dr. Marilyn Watts, Vice-President
Dr. Marilyn Watts is a retired Board Certified Pediatrician who became highly concerned with the dangers and overuse of prescription medications in the medical profession and decided to step out and make a difference. This passionate, outspoken physician made it her business to write fewer prescriptions for her patients, offer a more alternative and holistic form of care, and empower the masses with instructions for prevention and proactive care. Dr. Watts' insight is amazing.
Dr. Watts' focus is teaching people how to live a healthier, more vibrant life simply using "FARMaceuticals In A Box", by consulting in person and by phone. Visit her website https://www.drwattsorganiccare.com/.
Finally, after years of much research and study, as well as her own personal health transformation, she's ready to introduce "Farmaceuticals In A Box" to the world. The same supplements she uses daily.
