Shena Jade Jensen, MBE is currently the Financial Manager for SSP as well as a group Mentor. She is a former Board member and group Leader. She previously served as the Program Director of SSP, from 2010-2014.
Shena’s main focus is on rites of passage and ecotherapy. After spending years as an Environmental Consultant creating business models, carbon accounting models, and coaching organizational leaders on sustainability frameworks, she found these methodologies had little impact due to the fundamental disconnection between people and the environment. Shena turned to Ecotherapy as a way to facilitate a cultural reconnection through eco-education, wilderness therapy, and environmental and social activism. She is a psychotherapy trainee, Vision Quest Guide, and facilitates Rites of Passage workshops with Celebration of Being and the Sacred Living Institute. Shena also cofounded Critical Beats for the Climate to raise funds for Amazon preservation.
Shena has a BS in Economics from the Wharton Business School and an MBE in Sustainable Development from the University of New South Wales, and is currently going to the California Institute of Integral Studies to attain her Marriage and Family Therapy license. She is also the proud mother of two beautiful children.
