About

Hi friends! Welcome. I’m Jannan!

Thanks for taking the time to visit my little corner of the internet.

I believe in empowering others to live and travel with intention. I believe that time spent with those you love is never wasted, and I believe in experiences over things.

I’m a sometimes writer, mom of two funny kiddos, travel enthusiast, and healthy-living aspirer.

Nature inspires me, I’m an introverted lover of people, and I love to bake, because it’s precise. I can quote Rumi all day. 

Describing my professional life in one sentence is no easy task, but here goes. I’m an entrepreneur-ish, freelance writing, travel consultant with a passion for wellness and simple living, and serve as a part-time Giving Coordinator for an awesomely inspiring organization See Beautiful. Whew.

In my former life, I worked in international education, helping college students study abroad, and I’m also a certified yoga instructor. Needless to say, I’m multi-passionate. But first and foremost, I care about you, and my goal is to empower you to live your best life through travel and wellness.
