Jen Foley is an amazing, fun, kind and educated person, who embraced a vegan lifestyle 24 years ago and has been dedicated to sharing her message and experience with others ever since. Jen is one of the admins for Vegan Atlanta group, which has more than 8000 members and is in the heart of the vegan movement in Atlanta.

Tune in, as Jen talks about the power that each of us has as an individual to stand up for what we believe and how to be more effective when sharing your message. Jen also talks about her journey to becoming vegan and some of the mental strategies she employed when transitioning. Fun facts: Jen was a member of Vegan Atlanta group 10 years ago when it only had 30 members and met regularly for lunch; she also worked with Nathan Runkle in Ohio when he was 14 and was just starting Mercy for Animals!
