About Me

Hey there, thanks for checking out my blog! My name is Jenna Houchins and I was born and raised outside Chicago, IL.  In 2014, I graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana – Champaign with a degree in Global Studies and a concentration in Sustainable Business Development. After avoiding frost bite for 22 winters and a college degree in hand,  I decided to move out west to California after graduation. Before my time in the Peace Corps, I was working for an incredible company on the sunny beaches of Malibu, CA (unfortunately, I still don’t know how to surf). I will be serving in the Peace Corps as a Community Economic Development Volunteer in Peru from April 2016 – July 2018. I would love to answer any questions about the Peace Corps, Peru, or just chat! I can be reached through email at jennakhouchins@gmail.com.
