Meet the Team


Life in Düsseldorf isn’t just a one-man show. 

Without the help of our dedicated volunteers, you wouldn’t have the information you need to make the best out of your time spent in Düsseldorf. This website thrives off of the community efforts made, which is why we want you to meet a few core members of our author team:

Jenna was born and raised in a small city outside of Toronto, Canada. Jenna relocated to Düsseldorf, Germany in 2014 as a Content Creator and Social Media Manager. After having a rather rough start integrating into the local community, she created the website Life in Düsseldorf as a way for other newcomers to feel at home and for long-term expats to interact and share their own insider tips. If you’d like to get in contact with Jenna, you can send her an e-mail at hello@lifeinduesseldorf.com.
