Jenn also worked in communications and strategy at those NGOs, developing websites, giving presentations to global audiences, and managing mail and email communications.

Jenn has served as a youth delegate to the United Nations representing the Federation of Business and Professional Women.

No stranger to burnout, Jenn is passionate about sharing the power of meditation with professionals facing the same issue.
