Recently Jen Villa took time to sit down with me to talk about all things local. She has inspired me in so many ways especially when it comes to supporting my community! Jen is an artist and serial entrepreneur living on Cape Cod.
After a few years of running The Little Beach Gallery, representing and connecting with the incredible local artist community, she collaborated with Amanda Converse + Kate Sheehan and started LoveLiveLocal, an online lifestyle guide promoting all things local. She also co-founded Love Yoga Fest, a local yoga festival, with LoveLiveLocal partners and local yogi Annika Illiadis.

She is also a proud board member of both the Hyannis Main Street Business Improvement District(BID) and Cape Wellness Collaborative(CWC).
