  • Jenna grew up in a small New Jersey town with one traffic light, igniting her restlessness and need to see every corner of the world.
  • She has been to more than 40 countries and half of the U.S. (and counting, always) - not counting the airports.
  • An adventurous eater when she travels, she'll try pretty much anything but draws the line at melted cheese and bugs.


Jenna has been an award-winning journalist for a decade, having written about everything from street food in Taipei to the most haunted tunnels in the world in Edinburgh to boutique inns in Southampton. She founded her travel blog in 2012, and her work has been published in various blogs, websites, and magazines. She joined the Static Media team as a freelance real estate writer in 2021 before joining Explore in 2023.


Jenna has a bachelor's degree in journalism from Monmouth University, a small school just blocks away from the beaches of New Jersey.
