Jen McDonald

Growing up in rural Ohio, Jen was drawn to adventure at a young age and couldn’t wait to experience life beyond the cornfields. She moved to Nashville to attend Belmont University and, during college, she traveled abroad for the first time to England, Ireland and Scotland. That trip had a profound effect on her and sparked her passion for travel and experiencing the world. She earned her degree in Business Administration and then spent the next few years living in Phoenix and New York City — working in the music, television and beauty industries — before returning to Nashville to launch her own business as a freelance photographer.

Over the next 16 years, Jen grew as a photographer and business owner, partnering with creative teams across varied industries to produce beautiful imagery for brands and clients. Primarily focused on portrait and food photography, she’s had her work published in local Nashville magazines as well as Budget Travel, Travel + Leisure, Taste of the South, domino, and Virtuoso Life. Her freelance schedule allowed her to block out a lot of time for travel, which she took full advantage of, traveling extensively all over the US and world. So far, she’s been to 24 countries (some more than once) with some of her travel highlights being a three-week tour around India, a girls trip to Antibes, France, and hiking through several U.S. National Parks.

Jen decided it was time for a new life adventure and is thrilled to join the THIRDHOME team as a Relationship Manager. She is excited to help members take advantage of all the club benefits in booking their next adventure.

When not working or traveling, you can find Jen at home in East Nashville, enjoying the music or food scene, hiking or biking at one of the local parks, or enjoying a cocktail on a patio with her senior pup, Amelie, on her lap.
