This Comox Valley writer has been telling stories about interesting places, people and experiences for over twenty years. Jen is the author of several works of non-fiction including photography books (other people took the photos), a guidebook to Western Canada, and a biography of Alexander Graham Bell. She currently does travel and lifestyle writing for a number of companies and publications, both on Vancouver Island and in Alberta, and also works as an editor, helping other people tell their stories.
Jen’s work experience includes sales and marketing, tourism promotion, and the not-for-profit sector, including three years in marketing at The Banff Centre and stints as the general manager of Tourism Canmore and executive director of the Bow Valley Learning Council. As a member of the HPX Media team, she’s expanding her web-writing and SEO skills while getting to work with some really great people.
Jen was born in Montreal and has been migrating steadily westward ever since. After twenty years living in the Canadian Rockies, she now enjoys life and adventures in the Comox Valley with her unruly but wonderful family and dog. She isn’t too steady on a bike and will probably never take up kiteboarding, but loves all the many other outdoor experiences the island has to offer.
