About Jena Smith

I am a dream-bigger, travel-farther, live-smaller, ladynut that wants to know where all the roads go. I am 49% sarcastic and full of humor and 51% wholehearted and dedicated to service. I believe the purpose of my life is to bring joy to and help serve the needs of others. I have lived in Montana my entire life and at 34, I have decided it's time to shake things up. Zach and I have convinced each other that we should explore the world while we are still young and full of energy. I still believe anything is possible and life is what you make it. We sold our house, bought a fifth wheel and will be living on the road for as long as we enjoy this lifestyle.
