We were delighted to feature author, entrepreneur and world traveler Jennifer Poe on this week’s episode. (Seriously. It was a really fun interview.)
Jennifer is the author of the Hola, Morocha! series, a memoir of her time spent living in Buenos Aires, Argentina. She worked as a consultant with actress Elizabeth Berkley on her book for teen girls, the New York Times bestselling Ask Elizabeth and her writing has been published by Clutch magazine (2009); Zaji magazine (2012) and in an anthology made up of young women authors, endorsed by Eve Ensler, titled We Got Issues. She is a world traveler and writes about her adventures online at imported-chocolate.com. You can connect with Jennifer on Twitter at @JenCPoe, on Facebook and on Instagram at @jenpoeauthor.
