Ciao! I'm Jenna Gabrial Gallagher. I'm a former Features editor at Harper's Bazaar, and currently a freelance writer/editor and the content director for a boutique Omaha-grown PR and digital marketing agency. I have also contributed to several shopping guides, including the Where to Wear series and the Louis Vuitton City Guides.

I've had a pretty nomadic life, with lots of back and forth between Nebraska, New England, Paris and New York. For now, though, my husband and I are settled in Omaha, so that our children can be close to their grandparents.

Upon arrival in the Midwest, I soon discovered that the once-so-called flyover states have loads of amazing small businesses and smart, stylish, forward-thinking people who are putting themselves and their cities on the map.

I created The Beaspora to connect, inspire and support the aspirational people who are pollinating smaller cities with world-class ideas and talent. I also include snapshots of my own life as a mother of girls, thrower-of-parties and voracious consumer of high-and-lowbrow culture (usually in my Friday post, The Week that Was).

Please feel free to email or find me on Instagram at  @thebeaspora.
