Jennifer Zientz is Deputy Director of Performance Training and Head of Clinical Services at the Center for BrainHealth, part of The University of Texas at Dallas. She focuses on understanding and promoting healthy cognitive function, with an emphasis on high performance, across the lifespan.
Over the past 20+ years, she has played an instrumental role in researching, developing, and testing BrainHealth’s proprietary, science-backed brain health assessments and protocols to produce measurable improvements in brain fitness. The assessments form a holistic composite called the BrainHealth® Index that is taken periodically to track change. The protocols, called Strategic Memory Advanced Reasoning Tactics (SMART™), are delivered as high-performance brain training.
Jennifer leads a team of clinicians in training elite thinkers to help them reach beyond their perceived potential. She works with forward-thinking individuals and groups, including C-suite executives, Active Duty Special Ops, first responders, and corporate teams.
She oversees BrainHealth training certification programs. She also administers assessments to study the cognitive effects of degenerative disorders, such as Alzheimer’s disease and Frontotemporal dementia, and the short- and long-term effects of concussion.
