Our Team

Jen Ohlson
FOUNDER, CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER

In 2010, Jen was researching childhood health challenges related to obesity and emotional disturbances for her debut documentary “Health Needs a Hero." The former TV sportscaster and author was looking for one student to share their story. Instead, Jen uncovered 1,000 students in the San Antonio School District with a body mass index (BMI) over 40. Deeply inspired to find a way to empower young people to take ownership of their own health, Jen founded IHT.
