Meet Jean Oswald RNjean

Jean is a Registered Nurse, Natural Health Professional and graduate of the Scholars Program in Aromatherapy at The Aromahead Institute. She has over 15 years’ experience in the fields of Holistic Wellness and Spiritual Consciousness. She is the mother of five grown children and grandmother of three.

Jean’s 24 years of nursing experience have included a hospital ICU-step-down unit, case management within the community and hospice work where she provides bedside care at a local Comfort Care Home today. Since 2005 Jean has been seeing clients for Health & Wellness consultations under the umbrella of her company, Compassionate Consulting.  As a nurse, Jean is considered knowledgeable and trustworthy. She has a natural ability to connect with people and is described as insightful, heart-centered and compassionate.

Through a profound awakening in the mid 1990’s Jean began to understand the connection between body, mind and spirit and wanted to bring this understanding into patient care. She studied Energy Healing at Barbara Brennan’s School of Healing and in order to ‘walk her talk’ completed a 5 year Pathwork Process of Awakening in Madison, Virginia.

In 2004 Jean joined the Monroe County Medical Society’s Integrative Health Committee in Rochester. Through the encouragement of the Committee’s chair (Dr. Jeffrey Harris) to share aromatherapy in the local community, Jean opened Compassionate Consulting in 2005. Always a nurse, Jean sought out ways to connect Western practitioners with those individuals practicing Holistic approaches to healing. For 9 years this included an integral role in planning and hosting Integrative Health Seminars in Rochester. Jean became a Certified Clinical Aromatherapist in 2007, a Certified Natural Health Professional in 2009, earned a certification in Advanced Holistic Wellness in 2010, and completed the Scholar’s Program at the Aromahead Institute in 2013.

Jean belongs to the Alliance of International Aromatherapists and the American Holistic Nurse’s Association.

Having raised 5 grown children (ages 27-35) Jean is grateful for the blessings of motherhood – including the gift of being home with them for 12 years. She counts her life experience nurturing them as invaluable training – gaining understanding, wisdom, practical sense and skill unlike anything else.
