I answer to Jenae, Nae, Jenae Nae, or Nae Nae (yes, like the dance move).

I met my husband in a Christian chat room my senior year of high school.
We dated, long distance on opposite coasts, before he moved to California a year later. Here we are almost 19 years later!

In 2010, after a misdiagnosis in 2009, I almost died, spent 3 days in the ICU, and had a hospital bills that totaled more than $200,000. Scariest time of my life thus far. 

I took karate lessons in elementary school earing my second degree yellow belt and soon after, became obsessed with all things kickboxing.

As a child, I had a few modeling opportunities and had images used in several print campaigns.

I was born on Tax Day, into a family with a few CPA’s.  :)

I love California for all of the different environments it has and how close
I am to everything, but if I could move to any other state, it’d be a toss up between Tennessee or Florida.

If I had to binge watch anything, you’d probably catch me watching
Parks and Rec, Stranger Things, or Friends.

That's the hubby,

I listen to it all but punk rock is my favorite. Going to concerts and festivals is a big part of my life too.

THE BEACH + TRAVELING

The beach has been one of my havens with some of my local favorites being Santa Barbara, Carpinteria, Manhattan, + Long Beach. I enjoy travel of any kind! I've been across the country on a road trip that spanned 13 states in 15 days too. With my husband being from Georgia, we spend a lot of time in the south!
