Meet O Mag Insider – Jennifer Hay!

Age: Gulp, 38. That’s hard for me to admit. Can’t I just stay 29 forever? 😉

Occupation: Writer and social media content creator

What did you want to be when you were a little girl?

A teacher – instead I married one (who’s now an elementary school principal) 🙂

What are some different jobs you’ve had in your life?

Sales, banking, home daycare

What do you work toward in your spare time?

Since our industry is constantly changing, I often work on learning new techniques and updating my site.

Are you a morning person or a night owl?

Sort of in between. LOL! I like to sleep in, but not stay up too late either.

What are you most proud of?

My two sons. I am biased, but they are amazingly talented and smart!

What are you known for?

I hope it’s my giving spirit. I really enjoy volunteering and helping others.

What inspires you?

The Bible, Oprah, and Dr. Phil all inspire me to be my best self

Tell me something about you that most people don’t know.

I have social anxiety and it’s often difficult for me to open up to people. That’s why I love writing; it’s much easier to express myself.

Why did you apply to be an O Mag Insider?

I grew up in the “Oprah raised me” generation. I learned 2 years ago about the Insiders program and knew I had to be a part of it! She’s inspired me and helped me to believe in myself.

How do you live your best life? 

I actually answered that very question in a recent post

What are you reading now?

My favorite blogs and O Magazine of course!

What’s a day in your life like?

I sleep in as long as I can, then drop our middle schooler off. Next, I head to an elementary school where I volunteer with kids or work on PTA stuff, head home for lunch, get some work done, then pick up the boys, run errands, make dinner, head to sports, etc.
