Jenna Green, Full of Grit & Grace

Patient Leader

Since Jenna’s Multiple Sclerosis diagnosis in 2016, she has committed herself to bring awareness, support, education, and community to those who suffer from MS, invisible illnesses, chronic pain, and fatigue. She shares her own personal health journey while fundraising for the MS Society and speaking about how she copes with her autoimmune illness as a self-employed small business owner. She connects with her community on social media with her stories about real life including all the ups and downs of living with MS, running a business, and having an invisible illness ‘when you still look so good’. Jenna blogs regularly on social media marketing, lifestyle, and chronic illness topics on her own blog as well as contributing to various blogs and websites including The Unchargeables and painresource.com. In the past year, she's spoken about Chronic Pain at the Hope Project Series in Boston, and participated in the MS Action Day at the Massachusetts Statehouse, meeting with senators and representatives regarding important initiatives for MS warriors. She’s active daily on her Instagram and created her own Facebook support group that has connected together hundreds of women who run small businesses and also face extenuating circumstances in order to help them thrive while giving themselves the grace they so greatly deserve. She recently launched her first online course on affiliate marketing to help others that cannot work a traditional 9-5 learn how to make extra income recommending products they love on social media channels they already use. Jenna prefers the term unicorn over multiple chronic illnesses patient because it's more fun! She’s also a dog mom and foster dog mom, awesome auntie, fashion lover, and (mostly) optimist.
