Meet Jen (of Jen Terra Travels) - Westport Moms

How old are your kids and how long have you lived in the area? My two girls are 7 & 9. We’ve lived in Weston for a little over a year. Prior to that we were in Easton and Dallas, TX. It’s good to be back in the Northeast!

How did you end up where you are now in terms of your job, or whatever passion project it is you might be doing? After years of designing trips for myself, friends & family and spending all of my free time daydreaming about where I’d be traveling to next, I decided to turn my passion into a profession. A decade long insurance career prepared me well for dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s! Building my own business has been the hardest and most fulfilling work I’ve ever done!

What are you most looking forward to in 2021? More hugs and hopefully European travel.

What is the best show you have recently (binge) watched? Queen’s Gambit and Bridgerton

What is one food you could not live without? Sourdough bread

What is one thing people would be surprised to know about you? I have stage fright but also a strong desire to do stand-up comedy. I actually took a stand-up workshop during quarantine but our set was done via Zoom. One of these days I’ll make it on stage!

What is the best white lie you have told your kids? At 9pm each night if they are not asleep, bells that made their ears bleed would chime. After many weeks of seeing the fear in their eyes at bedtime, I finally broke down and told the truth. They are still mad.

Are you a morning person, or a night owl? 100% a morning person!! There is nothing more inspiring than the promise of a new day and a quiet house before the rest of my family wakes. It all starts going downhill at 5pm.

What is the first thing you do when you walk in the door after a long day? Kiss my kids and make a cocktail

Who in your life was – or is – the greatest inspiration for what you’re doing today? Definitely my husband Adam. He has always encouraged me to start my own business and do what I love. And he continues to support me despite my terrible work/life balance!
