"What's your story? It's all in the telling. Stories are compasses and architecture; we navigate by them, we build our sanctuaries and our prisons out of them, and to be without a story is to be lost in the vastness" - Rebecca Solnit

Jen is passionate about storytelling as a way to create positive change.


Dedicated to spreading the word about expeditions and projects she is involved in, the past seven years have seen Jen presenting internationally - at special events, affinity group meetings, outdoor courses, schools, academic workshops, film festivals & conferences.


She has presented about environmental and social issues, adventure and expeditions, and above all aims to instill hope and empower her audiences to understand they are the agents of change for a healthier future.


Jen is available for select speaking engagements on a seasonal basis.
