Jenny Prevost
Jenny Prevost is an aspiring picture book author, registered nurse and french fry fanatic. In the kind of story that you’ll only find in a small town, she married a boy who grew up one street over, and is blessed to be Mom to three lovable kiddos (and one lively lab.) It’s been said that she ‘missed a good chance to be a 50s housewife’ and has fallen hard for all things domestic. In her down time, she loves to sew, paint and play games with her fantastic and feisty crew. She has a passion for creativity and whole heartedly believes Brene Brown when she says, “The magic is in the mess.”
