Hi, I'm Jenny.
I'm a writer, actress, yoga instructor, and teaching artist, specializing in innovative interdisciplinary programs that stretch and strengthen the body and the imagination, and fire up the creative process. I post essays about all these things, and more, with irregular frequency right here on my blog, The Regular Jenny.
I'm a moderate health nut, immoderate talker, and shameless shoe enthusiast, chronically torn between conflicting identities as ardent east coast urbanite and closet west coast hippie beach bum, who likes her city Atlantic but her ocean Pacific. I love great coffee and passable wine, funny people, books on paper, the New York Times, shelter magazines, large popcorns at small movies, Topanga Canyon at sunrise, the Hudson River at sunset, and an ocean dip whenever possible.
In the summer of 2019, after 24 years in the Big Apple, my husband, actor Eric Sheffer Stevens, and I, with our kids, Hutch and Violet, and CJ, our beloved shabby-chic rescue mutt, made a bittersweet leap from New York to LA, moving from the charmed Chelsea brownstone, where we'd lived since the dawn of time, to a little house at the foot of my beloved Topanga Canyon.
