Jen Parker has ankylosing spondylitis (AS), psoriatic arthritis, and fibromyalgia. Her publishing business, Fuzzy Flamingo, was founded at the end of her first maternity leave in 2017, when she took her skills as Group Head of Production for a publishing house freelance. She now predominantly helps authors to self-publish with design, editing and publishing services. Jen says:
” My maternity leave showed just how much healthier I could be if I was in control of my environment and my stress levels, and I was in a much better place both physically and mentally.”
She is now a multi-award-winning business owner, editor and designer, and has recently become a best-selling author in her own right.
