Jackie Hennessey is a Rhode Island mom who gets what other mothers go through. Having worked full-time, part-time, and been a stay-at-home mom too, she sees motherhood from a variety of angles. And thankfully, with a sense of humor. Jackie blogs about her take on motherhood at ventingsessions.com and writes about it in her book, How to Spread Sanity on a Cracker.
Jackie is a native Texan with roots (and relatives) in Rhode Island. She has nearly 20 years of experience in journalism and public relations and holds a BA in journalism from Texas A&M University, where she received the “Best Aggie-Life writer” award. When she’s not writing, blogging or consulting, she enjoys volunteering at her kids’ schools and venting with other moms at the playground, in book groups, in line at the grocery store and during treasured girls’ nights.
Jackie lives in Barrington, RI with her husband, two children and their Golden Retriever, Marley.
