Jenn is a true Smithers local, having grown up in the valley. She has left and returned many times, however no place has had the same feel as Smithers and she has been happy to call the Bulkley Valley home since 2014. Jenn enjoys being outside doing anything active, as well as hunkering down on the banks of the Bulkley in her off grid, tiny home with her Bernese Mountian Dog, Yukon, cooking up anything delicious or fermented.
