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.
I also became a nationally sought after social media trainer, speaker, webinar facilitator, and podcast guest and authored the book, Social Media Etiquette: 100 Ways to Communicate With Grace and Class.
However, those years of heavy online use 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 operate a little differently. I choose to work part-time with mission-driven companies that do no harm, and spend the rest of my days writing, speaking, taking care of my health, and trying to be a good human.
Anything else you want to know about me?
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!
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.)
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!
