Meet Me: Jennie Vila

I was born and raised on the coast of Maine. I moved to New Jersey for college in 2003. I fell in love with both my husband and New Jersey and decided to stay. I have a little dog named Doc Hudson. I consider myself to be down to earth, friendly, fun and outgoing.


I enjoy spending time outside (when it's warm and sunny); I believe Mother Nature has her own curative powers for the soul. I love learning about pretty much anything and everything; I only wish there were more time in a day to do so.


Fun trivia: If I could choose any superpower, I'd choose teleportation so that I could easily travel the world and visit friends and family any time I wanted.
