Bonjour! Allo! Hello!

My name is Jenna and I'm sincerely happy to meet you (via the web)! Hopefully one day I can meet you in person, but until then, here is a little about who I am and what I'm about.

First and foremost, I'm passionate about people — development, growth, everyone's unique journey, personality and even what you ate for breakfast. Yes, I'm one of those girls that likes to tell you what I ate today.

I'd like to say here that I'm a journalist, poet, photographer, public relations specialist, event coordinator, trained spiritual director and lots of other things ... like a sailor. And I will tell you about those, but it's important to know I don't find my identity in them. At my core, I'm just Jenna — simply made, a little complicated and a bit quirky. And most of all, on a good day, I find my identity in Christ. With that said, hopefully you'll read on and I'll be honest with the fact that I'm not the best at any of these things, but I'm okay with that. I hope you are too!

I invite you to read and interact with the topics I discuss on soul care — soul hospitality is what I like to call it. Along the way, I'll feature other work, photography and interests, but I do hope this blog is a place of refreshment for you and yours.

Hope you have a lovely day!



More on my professional life if you're interested ...

The wedding industry is a meet cute for me at a fork in the road between photography and event planning/styling.

I picked up my first SLR camera in third grade and never put it down. I have a deep passion for photography as an art and journalism. Studying film photography in high school, I continued my love of the art in college through digital photojournalism courses always taking photos at events and conducting portrait shoots with friends. I graduated from Biola University in 2008 with a BA in Journalism.

Working at a scrap booking store in high school, my hands were always busy with something crafty. If I wasn’t taking photos, DIY projects and crafts were my creative outlet. However, it wasn’t enough. I started planning parties in high school that I’m sure were nothing like the parties most high schoolers attended - think small scale wedding receptions on a budget with tons of DIY accents. When I discovered the wedding industry in college, I became slightly obsessed falling in love with the details, the photography, the simple yet extravagant beauty of it all. 

Working as an event coordinator, photographer and currently full time in public relations & marketing, I have found my niche incorporating my different loves into one corner. I'd love to meet you so feel free to leave a comment or email me at!
