I’m Jenny Shea Rawn – Registered Dietitian, wife and mom with a love for the ocean, passion for eating, cooking and learning about local seafood and a thirst for knowledge about life under, on and by the sea. My husband and I live on Cape Cod, in Falmouth, MA with our two beach-loving young kiddos.

This blog is all about unlocking the mystery of the sea – celebrating all that the ocean offers, while learning and sharing along the way.

Seafood is a passion of mine and is something so many of us love to order and enjoy at restaurants, but still has an intimidation factor when selecting at the store and preparing at home. My goal is to make it easier for you to select, prep, cook and enjoy seafood at home, often.

About Jenny Shea Rawn

As a child, Jenny’s family vacationed on Cape Cod (Chatham or Wellfleet) or Nantucket every year since she was born. She’s been a lobster and swordfish lover since birth (pretty much) and as a young child she would request lobster for her birthday dinners. Her love for the ocean runs deep – so deep, in fact, that the main reason she chose her college (Boston University) is because it was a “quick drive” to the Cape (which we all know that drive is never quick).

Jenny is a Registered Dietitian with a Master’s in Nutrition and a Master’s in Public Health from Tufts University. She spent just about a decade in the corporate world (at Shaw’s Supermarkets/SUPERVALU followed by a large public relations firm) doing spokesperson work, partnering with food brands and running health and wellness programming. When she was pregnant with her first child, she launched her own business focusing on nutrition communications, recipe development and food photography.

Jenny has been featured in hundreds of local and national media outlets including: The Boston Globe, Fox 25 News, The Boston Herald, FoodNetwork.com, The Chef’s Kitchen, Cape and Islands Magazine, NESN, NECN, WEEI, Women’s Health, Shape, Progressive Grocer, The Cape Cod Times and more. Jenny has been a featured guest speaker for The Network of Executive Women, Go Red for Women Events with the American Heart Association, Harvest on the Harbor, the Women’s Health Symposium and more. In Jenny’s free time (ha! What’s that?!) she enjoys running, walking, gardening, beaching it, snuggling with her babies and, of course, cooking and learning everything there is to know about seafood. Jenny has completed 9 marathons and countless half marathons around the New England area.
