How We Got Here
SimplyWell has been a developing concept in the mind of the owner (Jehna Duncan) for many years now. Jehna went through a bad spout with her health in 2011 when she moved to the United-States for school. When she later returned from travels from England in 2013, her health worsened. After many visits to the hospital and no results, Jehna took it upon herself to seek out holistic solutions.
Ever since, Jehna has used the power of holistic health care to not only re-gain her health but to help others as well. Through the process of starting SimplyWell, Jehna has learned the power of networking and the high value of customer care. These two values paired with her love for local businesses, simplicity, sustainability and holism have come to be the fundamentals of SimplyWell.
With these morals SimplyWell products are ensured to be of the highest quality. This quality and care does not end with the creation of juice - but it is continued through the delivery process, by providing nutrition advice to their valued customers before and after their purchases, and with all things SimplyWell related.

Owner, B.A., Certified Sports Nutritionist & Certified Diet Analyst
After graduating from SUNY Potsdam with a BA in Psychology, Jehna began working at Full Circle Health Network (a holistic based clinic) and became a Certified Diet Analyst, Certified Sports Nutritionist and a Certified Reiki Practitioner.
During this time Jehna became fully engulfed in the world of juicing. She saw it as the perfect fit to integrate with her belief in a plant based holistic lifestyle which she has used to not only re-gain her health, but changed her outlook on life.
Jehna launched SimplyWell in May 2015 as an online & delivery juice service. Now SimplyWell has expanded to a brick and mortar location at 34 Princess.
Jehna's focuses at the store are: the development of new juice creations, recipes, searching for fun local products to bring in, product knowledge & information, business management, social media management, nutritional information, all while keeping the store as sustainable as possible with waste reduction strategies.
On her spare time, Jehna enjoys spending time with friends and family, her adorable shorkie Walter, doing yoga & creating fun new veggie-based recipes!
