This is Jenna Garzaniti’s third year volunteering with the Prancing Ponies fashion show. She currently works at Monterey Touring Vehicles ensuring guests have a great time visiting the peninsula in a classic car, and for Human Minded, a local company specializing in natural, effective pain relief products. Jenna is also working on building a career in the field of psychedelics for improving mental health and well-being. She currently assists clients in becoming knowledgeable and comfortable with microdosing and will be starting a year-long intensive training program in October to be a skilled integration coach. She is the proud mother of Gabriel Garzaniti, who will be wearing his own design in this year’s show and just celebrated 25 years of a sweet, loving marriage.
Prancing Ponies would like to thank our Models, Designers, and our fabulous Team Leaders who believe in supporting Women who support Women!

Queen of Ceremonies
Glodean is a 2x TEDx Speaker and Keynote Speaker who pulls from her mother’s influence — her first authentic leader – to create stories about life, leadership, and acceptance that connect with people. She is a master storyteller whose thought-provoking ideas about “difference” force people to re-examine and often shift their perspectives and belief systems. Her approach to everything she does is with honesty, authenticity, and vulnerability and the intent to leave people better than she found them.
She is a Six Sigma Black Belt with over 20 years of experience as a Lean Six Sigma leader, DEI disrupter, and master educator. Glodean specializes in continuous improvement: of self, in leaders, teams, processes, and organizations. She is also the celebrated author of the award-winning coming-of-age novel Salmon Croquettes. She loves her Tibetan Terrier, Tashi, her weighted blanket, breakfast for dinner, and Self-love Sunday, her favorite day of the week.
