Nice to meet you!

My name is Jennifer Kane, (just Jen is fine) and I'm a digital marketing, communications, and wellness consultant,
as well as an author, educator, and accomplished public speaker. I'm feisty, wise, nimble, meticulous and don't take myself too seriously. 

A little bit about me...

My digital career was born along with the early days of the web, when I shifted my already decade-long marketing and communications career to focus primarily on the digital space.

For the next fifteen years, I consulted non-profits, higher-ed institutions, agencies, B2B, and B2C companies on their digital marketing and communications and became a nationally sought after social media trainer, speaker, webinar facilitator, and podcast guest as well as the author of the book, Social Media Etiquette: 100 Ways to Communicate With Grace and Class and a two-time IABC Bronze Quill award winner for social media marketing planning.

(Honestly, many of my career accomplishments from this time period--like being a “top Twitter influencer” or guesting on podcasts that no longer exist--are now meaningless. But trust me, I was a busy lady!)

However, those years of heavy online use also led to some burnout and chronic health conditions, including multiple spinal fusion surgeries. In response, I became a certified digital wellness educator and wrote a second book, Chronic Pain Recovery: A Practical Guide to Putting Your Life Back Together After Everything Has Fallen Apart.

Today, I work part-time with mission-driven companies who are doing good in the world, and spend the rest of my time writing, taking care of my health, and trying to be a good human. 

Anything else you want to know about me? 

Didn't I hear you speak once?

Probably. I've been doing public speaking for decades, in both personal and professional contexts. It's my favorite way to connect with people!

Don't you read a crazy amount of books?

Yes. I  read about 100 books each year. (I basically have no social life :)  If you're a reader too, I invite you to check out my annual best books post. I'd be happy to talk about books with you anytime! 

What are you currently obsessed with?

I'm forever obsessed with animals, teeny things, giant things, Badtz-Maru, and zombie shows (preferably made in Korea.) Currently obsessed with Harney's & Sons cherry blossom green tea, the game I Love Hue Too, Mary Lucia, and one piece jumpsuits or overalls (even though they can make me look like an Oompa Loompa... I'm very short IRL.)

Do you remember me?

I've run large membership organizations, organized huge conferences, maintain a healthy-sized social network, and speak in front of large, diverse audiences. So that makes it super challenging to  remember all the names of people I've encountered. If you run into me sometime, please reintroduce yourself!
