What is your favorite part of living in the Okanagan?
The true 4 season weather (especially summers spent by the lake!) keeps me loving life in the Okanagan.
What are your favorite Okanagan store and favorite restaurant to eat at?
My perfect day is a sunny morning at the beach with my fam, afternoon pizza at Pane Vino, and stopping by my fave decor shop, Home Again Consignment, on the way home.
What is one thing you think people overlook about the Okanagan?
I think one of the most underrated parts of Okanagan living is the buzzing community of local makers and businesses right here in the interior. It keeps me constantly inspired!
Where can people find you?
You can find me at @jamie.krause!
Creative Manager + Content Creator
Who are you? What are your passions in life, people you hang out with, things you do
My name is Jenn Renéa. A new face to social media, but an old face to the Okanagan. As someone who once felt jaded about their hometown, my appreciation for the life I lead has aged like a fine wine – Residual jamminess, with peppery notes of gratitude. If/When I leave my apartment, you may find me on the prowl in local thrift stores or record shops. Otherwise, I may be on a backcountry hiking trail or at the bar sipping a martini. I’m a versatile woman.
What is your style or vibe? Specially when it comes to creating content.
Dark, moody, edgy, with occasional outburst of vibrant colours and underground cultural references.

Favorite type of content or marketing to work on.
Anything that tickles my creative bone. That sounded wrong. Imagery; creating moods and brand strategies. Splicing and mixing mediums. I also love working with people; building relationships and community.
