Jenni grew up on beautiful Whidbey Island in the Pacific Northwest, moved to Indiana in 2002, and finally settled in the Indianapolis area in 2011. She and her husband are the lucky parents of a 13-year-old daughter & a one-year-old daughter. The 12 year age gap keeps them on their toes and makes life interesting, to say the least! While it doesn't define her, Jenni is a survivor of child abuse and deals with the pain of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. She hopes to reach out to others who are struggling to heal while trying to raise their children. She is a stay-at-home mom and loves creating digital birthday boards for her Etsy shop, Ruby Laine Designs. She also enjoys singing, painting, and spending time with her family at their lake cottage in Michigan.
