I'm new to the board and just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Jenny and I live in southeastern Michigan. I'm in my early 30s and have been a lacto-ovo vegetarian since 2000.

I'm a huge animal lover and pet owner. Currently I have one 6-year-old cat named Harry and a Boston Terrior named Harvard (who is the newest addition... only had him for a few months). I've been active with my local animal shelter for many years; started out walking dogs and progressed to serving on the organization's board of directors (I'm no longer part of the board) and then acting as managing editor of the shelter's annual newsletter publication.

At the moment, I'm heavily involved in a small home-based business that I just launched, which is purposely veggie-friendly! I won't mention the name here as I'm not sure if it would break any forum rules.

I very much enjoy being vegetarian. For the most part, my family and friends have been very supportive. My current beau, who is a meat eater, is wonderful about it and voluntarily went veg for a whole week when we went camping/hiking in the Smoky Mountains this past fall (we made all our food recipes from the Lip Smackin' Vegetarian Backpackin' book).

In the past I've used books and magazines as my resources for vegetarianism. But I'm glad i found this board. Looking forward to the wealth of information that appears to be within this site.
