Jene-Anne, called Jen by her friends, takes delight in writing inspiring stories of success, action and movements in communities.
In 2019, she took the life-changing decision of following her dreams—to pursue journalism and civic engagement.
Currently, she works as a community and civic engagement specialist at Rappler.
Through this, she learned the importance of building communities of action for social good as she continues to work with movers and doers across the country.
Before she joined Rappler, she worked full time as a medical laboratory scientist and clinical instructress at a tertiary hospital in Tacloban City.
Her involvement with MovePH started when she became a mover back in 2014 and an intern in 2015. Coming from a place heavily struck by Supertyphoon Yolanda, she covered events and wrote stories about her community in relation to the environment and disasters.
When she’s taking the time off from work, you can find her at home organizing clothes and labelling stuff for a ‘tidily ever after’. There’s also a great chance she’s out to a restaurant or cafe eating good food alone or with friends.
She loves to explore wonderful places, discover great things, and try new pursuits. She also likes to sing and is passionate about her faith for her one true love, Jesus Christ.
