family on the beach

About Me

Hello! My name is Jenn, and I’ve always loved traveling.

As a child, my family and I spent a lot of time driving to several New England beaches: From Kennebunkport and Ogunquit, Maine to the island shores of Martha’s Vineyard. And when my husband and I (who are both teachers) got married, we always looked forward to summer breaks and planning our next adventure together.

A few years ago, we set a goal of seeing every baseball park in the United States, and used that as a jumping off point to experience all the other wonderful sights our vast country has to offer. And when we had children, we didn’t let that slow us down. We knew we preferred to give our children experiences instead of material possessions, and wanted the road to be one of their most valuable learning tools. And so, we’ve been hitting the road as a family ever since our youngest turned one, back in 2011, with no plans to stop any time soon.

As a high school English teacher, living and working in Fairfield County, CT, writing is another one of my major passions. So combining my love for writing and traveling, I started submitting articles to various blogs detailing my keen ability to plan and execute such ambitious driving vacations on a budget with small children.

This year I am proud to launch my own dedicated blog site: Coast2CoastWithKids

When I’m not in the classroom, or on the road with my family, I spend my time helping my community as the founder of the nonprofit organization, IMPACTrumbull.
