Jenny McCormick – Assistant Editor.
Jenny is a former Children’s Librarian with an AA in Library Science, a former Executive Assistant through various public safety and service agencies and now, Assistant Editor of PreemieWorld.
She is a young widow and proud mother to 8-year old, David Jax and 6-year old, Joshua Drake – a former 26-week micro-preemie who spent 129 days in the NICU. Having traveled the arduous preemie journey, Jenny is incredibly passionate about promoting prematurity awareness, raising funds to help eradicate premature birth and fund life-saving medical research for preemies as well as encouraging other preemie moms who are on this journey, by participating in programs that reach out to hospitals and parents in the community and through online support groups.
Jenny also enjoys reading and inculcating a love of reading in children. A self-proclaimed, “Rocker chick for life,” she loves attending rock concerts, plays and listening to live music of all genres. She enjoys writing and sharing her story as a way to encourage others in similar situations. Many have enjoyed her blogs on grief and widowhood on “A Warrior’s Battle” Facebook Page and the experiences of her preemie journey with her youngest son, Joshua on “The Year of the Dragon: Joshua’s Journey.”
