About

Part travelogue, part life log, and part travel resource, Parenture celebrates the inevitable adventures of parenting–near and far. Some happen by surprise, others by necessity, and a precious few are planned in advance.

Jen Swetzoff, founder of Parenture.com, is a writer, editor, and mom with an incurable case of wanderlust. During the past decade, she has visited more than 20 countries on 6 different continents, and  has written about many of them. In addition, she regularly edits books, articles, and reports on global affairs and business. She holds a BS in communications, with a focus in international relations, from Boston University. Jen lives in Brooklyn, New York, with her husband, daughter, and son.
