RN, BSN, RMT
Jen figured out late in life that she's better off being her own boss. She is a multi-passion entrepreneur who loves to serve, mentor, write, and create pieces of art.
Jen loves to goof around, watch Star Wars, eat crab wontons, and go for walks in the woods. She believes that looking young is staying true to herself and creating a unique wellness lifestyle that makes her happy.
Jen moved to the Blue Ridge Mountains in 2014. She and her husband bought 15 acres and will be building their dream home overlooking Roanoke Valley.
Jen resides in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Roanoke, Virginia. She lives with her loving husband, baby boy, and four crazy cats.
Her nursing experience ranges from Resource Pool to Neurotrauma ICU, and Hospice Home Health.
This taught Jen a lot about the vulnerability in times of trauma, chaos, and tragedy. During her time in the critical care unit, she volunteered free Reiki sessions for her colleagues. It was during this period when she realized how much she loved providing gentle healing and balancing to the human spirit.

Jen's Journey to Intuitive Art
From a young age, Jen has been captivated by the world of art. Her passion for creativity and self-expression blossomed throughout her childhood, leading her to pursue a degree in Art History at Whittier College in California. Although her academic studies deepened her appreciation for the diverse history and traditions of art, Jen took a hiatus from creating her own work after graduation.
The turning point in Jen's artistic journey came when she attended a spiritual retreat and crossed paths with Dina Fortune, a fellow artist and spiritual guide. During the workshop, Jen discovered the power of intuitive art and the profound connection between creativity, spirituality, and personal growth.
Inspired by her transformative experiences at the spiritual retreat, Jen began exploring her own intuitive artistic process, creating deeply personal and evocative pieces that resonated with her newfound spiritual path. Through her art, Jen found a way to express her authentic self, while also fostering a deeper understanding of her inner wisdom and spiritual journey.
In 2023, Jen decided to share her unique and empowering digital art with the world by launching her online shop. Her mission is to inspire and empower women of all ages and backgrounds through her artwork, providing them with the tools and guidance they need to awaken their authentic selves and harmonize their holistic being.
By combining her love for art and spirituality, Jen has created a vibrant and inspiring collection of digital art pieces that serve as a catalyst for personal growth, spiritual development, and the cultivation of inner strength, wisdom, and resilience. Through her work, Jen invites women to embark on their own journey of self-discovery and transformation, ultimately creating a positive impact in the world.
