another jennifer

I am the mother of two boys and one male Siberian husky. We live in Maine. (No. We don’t own a sled.) I’m left-handed and right-brained. I hate pie, but I love bacon. I’m kind of obsessed with philanthropy and making a difference in the world.

I love writing and telling stories and am lucky enough to do it for a living. My blog aims to inspire, to entertain, and to make you think. I am particularly interested in working with bloggers, entrepreneurs and nonprofits who are passionate about what they do and want to make a difference with their voice.
