Jenny is a biologist and mom of two little boys who are spunky, adventurous, sassy, and most days, sweet! She loves living in the East Mountains because she is surrounded by nature. Her family enjoys all things outdoors--hiking, camping, climbing, biking, or just playing in the dirt. Jenny is a rogue professor who took her academic knowledge and experience and turned it into a business that helps parents connect their kids with nature. If you have any questions about nature or getting outside, connect with her via her blog, Facebook, or Instagram.
