The Girl Behind the Blog

Hi there!

My name is Jenn and I'm really happy you've stopped by. I created this blog in 2014 with the hopes of sharing healthy recipes and fitness tips, life lessons and musings from daily life to make you go hmmm. Beyond health and fitness, I like to write about topics including careers, relationships, body image, traveling and more. It is my ambition to start conversations that encourage us to live happier, healthier lives. 

I'm a fitness fanatic who admittedly suffers from a bit of workout ADD. I love blasting good tunes and crushing a heavy lifting session in the gym, trail running with friends, the blissful feeling after hot yoga and barre classes. I've completed triathlons only to find out I'm terrified of open water swims and used to be a CrossFit fanatic (although I've recentlyed picked it back up!). I'm a certified Barre instructor and an NPC Bikini Competitor. 

Professionally, I work as a Strategic Product Marketing Director for a large healthcare IT company and prior to diving deep within corporate american, I served as speech and script writer to General Schwarzkopf and General Haig. 

I'm a firm believer that some of the best memories are made with loved ones around a big dining room table - sharing healthy and wholesome food alongside a rich glass of cabernet (or whatever you enjoy!). I have a passion for creating healthy versions of classic recipes (I'm fairly certain my Paleo Pad Thai could rival even the best Thai restaurants around).

My sweet King Charles Cavalier Lucy manages to crack me up on the daily! 

How could you NOT love that face?!

  4. I’ve traveled my way through three passports.
