I’m Jenny Pace.

(You might know me as Jenny Hyde)

I believe in creatives, women, authenticity (the real one, not the buzzword), joy, and success. I believe we make our own futures with small, sometimes invisible, actions. I believe you are your business, and you’re not. And I believe that you’re far more than your social media feeds.
