Jennifer Buchanan is a health entrepreneur in the truest sense of the word. Since she became a certified music therapist almost three decades ago, the music therapy industry has shifted from not being a recognized industry at all to becoming a legislated profession. As a leading expert, Buchanan has served hundreds of organizations with her team at JB Music Therapy, which she founded in 1991.
JB Music Therapy has thrice been nominated for the Community Impact Award by the Calgary Chamber of Commerce. Jennifer is also the former president of the Canadian Association of Music Therapists (1998-2001, 2013-2015). She is recognized as an esteemed leader in bridging academic research in music, medicine and the public.
Jennifer has appeared in many media outlets and presented internationally to numerous education, healthcare and government organizations. She is the author of Wellness Incorporated: The Health Entrepreneur’s Handbook and Tune In: A Music Therapy Approach to Life and is currently on the board of directors with the Famous 5 Foundation.
