I’m Jena.


I’m an extroverted introvert, a lover of trees and fresh water swimming and babies and bulldogs, and a rabbi at heart. All of my work, from writing groups to retreats to individual coaching, editing, and mentoring, is devoted to creating safe and brave spaces where we get to write, share, and connect. I’ve been blogging as a practice since 2007.

This isn’t work we can do alone. Showing up, telling our stories, and taking good care of ourselves and each other through how we live and write — that’s why I’m here. Thank you for being on the other side of the words — and for sharing your own. Read more about me here.
