Jaellayna lives in Ayr, Ontario, Canada. Originally from the US, she moved to Canada with her husband John (he is from New Zealand) in 1994 after serving for 8 years as volunteers at the Baha’i World Centre in Haifa, Israel. She is semi-retired as an Instructional Designer, helping clients design and deliver educational materials with an emphasis on inclusive teaching and learning strategies. She is passionate about travel – having visited 45 countries so far with many more still on her wishlist – and fitness. A newspaper columnist for 10 years, she has recently published a full-length book of personal essays. Titled “Personal Path, Practical Feet,” this book is available in both paperback and all e-formats through booksellers worldwide including amazon (and its many vendors) and the Baha’i distribution service. The author’s website also offers many other ways to order it.
