About Jenna Short


I AM a princess that wears hiking boots. I am a world traveler. I love oatmeal and bananas. My husband is my best friend. I practice yoga everyday. I am an old soul. I am a born and raised "Bean-eater". I probably should wear a helmet. My parents think I look like a duck. It's important to be well seasoned, food or otherwise. I prefer to watch the winter Olympics. I start every day with green tea. I live what I love, I love what I do. I was a figure skater for 14 years. I think a good PB & J can solve problems. I have lived in Israel, Italy, London, Sweden, India, Boston & New York City. I am serious but I'm ready to party -oh and any movie with Paul Rudd in it is always a good time. I love getting lost in new cities. Great lyrics make my soul sing. I love hiking, skiing & camping... really anything in snow or dirt.  I believe in love at first sight... but maybe I need glasses? My pot roast would blow your mind. Saturday nights are for art projects. I try to go somewhere I have never been every year. I don't wear high heels... unless you pay for the cab ride. I make up words. Karaoke terrifies me. My hair is my super power. And believe that life is all about the zest.
