I’m Jenna and I am SUPER excited to be joining this team of Mamas. I have been married for over 16 years, am a Mama to two amazing littles age 7 and (almost) 4, and am a full-time elementary special education teacher. Add dance, basketball, lacrosse, and swimming, and busy doesn’t even begin to describe our crazy life. I LOVE summers and the extra time to be together. We hike, travel, play, and explore. I have an addiction to soy chais and Arnold Palmers. Happiness is being in the sunshine with my friends and family, walks on the beach, long road trips, and anything Disney.
I strongly believe we were not created to be inside. Don’t get me wrong, I love a day watching mindless television on the couch as much as the next Mama, but I can last a day and then I NEED OUT. My kids are the same way. We just manage better if we’ve spent time outside. I love going on adventures with my kids and listening to them as we see and experience new things and new places.
We’ll talk safety, cell service, bathrooms, terrain, and whether you’ll need a full backpack or just your favorite kid-carrier. We’ll cover mileage, fitness levels, and age limits. Each hike will be done with my kids (age 7 and 4) and will give their opinion as well. I will start with those in and around town and as we get closer to summer, we will venture a bit further out. Let me know if there’s any trails you’ve been dying to try and I will do my best to get on those!
