Your host Jen is a traveling Aussie. She lives mostly in Bali, which has part of her heart; another part is in West Africa, another part in New Zealand, where she was born, and all of it where her two sons and her sisters are. It's great that she's around to help with ideas for great travel around Indonesia.
Like the house manager ibu Gusti, Jen a good cook and a great host. She's recently finished a 15 month stint as an Australian Volunteer International in Development (AVID) volunteer, helping an Indonesian non-profit expand one youth centre here in Bali, and set up another one in post-tsunami Aceh, at the western end of the country. Now she is in the Philippines, helping there after the horrific super-typhoon.
She's an extrovert (that is, she gets her energy from interactions with the outside world, not from her private space) and a people person. She believes a stranger is a friend she hasn't met yet.
She loves dancing, especially partner dancing - Swing, Modern Jive and Rock n Roll for preference ( Salsa if the others aren't available), and more recently African dancing. She loves fantasy/ sci fi too, though there's not much time left for reading with so many choices of good nightlife in Ubud.
Jen believes that her life's purpose is to be a Prosperity Catalyst.
