My Sister, Jenn

    I don’t always share a ton about myself or my family here on the blog, but today, I wanted to branch out a little and share about my sister, Jenn. She’s my baby sister and she’s pretty darn amazing. As you can see, we joke that she is “horizontally challenged”, but she makes up for it with her spirit and joy. If you’ve ever met my girls, you’d think Jenn was their mama, as they look just like her! My youngest also inherited her gypsy, bohemian free spirit. She is extremely smart and successful in all of her career endeavors, but her heart and soul resides in helping others find wholeness in their wellness journey.

    She is a certified holistic health coach, wellness advocate, yoga instructor, food and travel blogger, recovering CPA, and green smoothie junkie. She began a health and wellness journey as it relates to food five years ago. She suffered from migraines, and turned to food education, eliminating certain foods from her diet to perhaps learn the cause of the headaches. Her content at Jennifer Pierce Health focuses on healthy recipes, eating quality mostly organic whole foods, and developing and facilitating online group detox programs. When she is not working and blogging, you can find her hiking the greenbelt, basking in the Florida sun, attending or teaching a sweaty yoga session, and enjoying the live music scene in Austin, and planning her next travel adventure!

    You can check out more of my fab sister here, where she was highlighted as being a leader in social media in InWeekly. I’m so happy this gal is my sister, and couldn’t be more proud of all she’s accomplished and succeeded in. My girls have such a role model in their “Aunt Jenn”.

    Miss Emily….she is really something else! I have so, so much admiration for her drive, passion, and determination. Her hard work has really paid off; she graduated early from Reagan High School in San Antonio, Texas, and she is totally loving her new adventure: college.

    Emily is bright, funny, and beautiful. She used to be a cheerleader at Reagan, and says she counts becoming Cheer Officer as one of her biggest accomplishments during her time there. “My friends would probably describe me as sweet, caring, and goofy”, she explains, “I love to laugh and am always smiling!” In her spare time, she enjoys singing, being with her friends, traveling to the beach, and camping, and adds, “I am always up for anything adventurous, and hope to one day travel the world.” Among her many academic accolades, she received the Dean’s Scholarship for her college (University of the Incarnate Word), which was academic and merit based. After her early graduation, she is going to be pursuing her nursing degree there.

    “I definitely miss her smile and laugh now that she’s at college”, explains her mom, “She makes me feel very blessed as a mother, and she brings a lot of joy to our family. I’ve loved watching her become the wonderful person she is today.” Besides her many admirable traits, she also has such great personal style. She loves to shop at places like Woven and Brandy Melville, and you can usually find her sporting something from her favorite designer, Sheri Hill. “My style is definitely urban or bohemian”, she concludes, “I don’t love photos that are fake or overly edited”. I knew there wouldn’t be much (or anything!) to edit with her beautiful complexion and stunning eyes!

    Most of all, I was proud to be the one documenting her amazing high school journey, and I’m so proud of her. Not only is she extremely smart, she is also incredibly kind, and will make the best nurse!
