My name is Jennifer Arnold Parsley. I am 44 years old, I moved to Memphis, Tennessee with my wonderful husband Simon, our boxer mutt Riley, and our cat Basil in the fall of 2015.
I quit my job after 18 years working in the chemical industry. I have a chemical engineering degree and an MBA, I did everything from engineering to marketing and, in the end, completely burned out from working 18 years in an industry / career that was certainly never a passion of mine. It was all about a paycheck and security. I may have enjoyed some positions or parts of different things, but overall it was a struggle. It took me many years and a lot of introspection to discover what my true passions in life are. I can now confidently say that they are: Healthy Plant Based Cooking & Eating / Music (especially The Blues) / Spiritual Growth.
We moved to Memphis because we chose to. It wasn't a job transfer or necessity. We chose to design the lives we really want to live and not just live based on what a job or society was telling us to do. We chose to go live in a fun, cool city while we are still young enough to enjoy it. We absolutely love it here. We downsized into a smaller home for the two of us and our pets. We are lovingly restoring our 107 year old home in the Cooper-Young district of Memphis, a cool up and coming neighborhood with all sorts of fun restaurants, bars, shops, and a great yoga studio all within a few blocks of our home. Simon & I are both signed up for unlimited yoga, we walk to class two blocks away.
