ABOUT JENN and the CREATION of JENNUINECANDLES
By day and for the past 13 years, I have been an Occupational Therapist. I currently work with the older adult population in an assisted living/memory care environment, but have worked in pediatrics as well . I have the opportunity, on a daily basis, to maximize the lives of our residents and to help them live a higher quality of life. Rewarding? Most definitely. Stressful? Unfortunately. Over the course of my career, I have experienced countless moments of joy and sorrow which has led me to understand the true meaning of living life for every moment. And with this, I opened myself up to the "art" of art. Over the past 4 years, my husband and I have become photography hobbyists; I absolutely enjoy capturing the beautiful creations of nature and we go on adventures as often as possible. I have dabbled in the crafts of sewing and jewelry making, as well. And most recently, in a desire to continue expanding my creative side, I started making Palm Wax candles. When I first started out making my candles, I only intended on making them for friends and family, and of course for my enjoyment as well. That is until my husband took a few of my candles to work to burn at his desk while he was working and then my "business" kind of bloomed from there. His co-workers started asking if I could make candles for them and then my co-workers got wind of my new creations and they started placing orders and the orders just kept coming from there, thus the creation of jennuinecandles.
