Growing up in Maine, alone in the backseat of her parents' car, Jennifer dreamed of replicating her idyllic childhood when she was older with a family of her own. But, a revolving door of Craigslist roommates and Tinder/Bumble dates following her divorce at age 35 resulted in her adult life turning out to be the opposite of what she expected, manifested by the fact that she still finds herself alone in the backseat.
Faced with the challenge of making her mortgage payments after her husband left, she posted an ad to rent out her living room. Over the past eight years, she has shared her one bedroom apartment with 71 people from sixteen countries, sometimes four at a time! Thanks to her resourcefulness and perseverance, she avoided financial ruin and made friends from all over the world.
Although she has experienced the lows of loneliness and divorce, she is grateful for the many times in her life she has felt like the luckiest girl in the world. Cross cultural experiences living with wonderful families in four different countries and exciting international love affairs have often made her life feel like a movie.
