Incredibly Tough - Jenn Zeller

A Tough Calling

A Tough Calling

In large part, Jenn Zeller chooses to live her life up on the saddle. Always along for the ride is her LG V30, featuring tough Corning® Gorilla® Glass 5.

As kids, we all have dreams. City born with a country heart, a 4-year old Jenn Zeller had but one dream — riding horses. It was a big ask for a young suburban girl, but eventually her wish was granted and she seized the opportunity with a fury. From exercising polo ponies, to barrel racing, to roping calves, Jenn would become a fierce and determined high school rodeo competitor. Her passion and ability even earned her a college scholarship in the sport. She kept competing and, as a practical matter, graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. A promising career in the financial services industry followed. But this Cowgirl still had a calling — and it wasn’t being an Assistant Investment Advisor.

Fast-forward to 2017 and you won’t find Jenn in a corner cubicle crunching numbers. Nope. Instead, she is back in the saddle full time. Nearly 10 years ago, in true act of courage (and a little defiance), Jenn re-answered her calling by heading to the rural plains of South Dakota, following her heart to a nearly 8,000-acre ranch, miles and miles from the general public. Here, she joined the 3rd-generation family-run ranch where they raise Black Angus/Brangus cattle and Registered Quarter Horses. Deeply connected to horses and fully committed to doing the hard work that comes with ranching, Jenn summarized her journey perfectly, “Life is entirely too short to spend it doing something you don’t like. Find what you love and find a way to do it. Don’t be scared.”

Today she’s known as The South Dakota Cowgirl on her web site, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts. With the help of her tough LG V30, featuring Corning® Gorilla® Glass 5, she runs the ranch from her saddle, while capturing her daily passions to share with interested followers. 


A Beauty and a Beast — The LG V30 featuring Corning® Gorilla® Glass 5

Featuring an elegant, ergonomic design, the LG V30 packs plenty of punch to back up its beauty. The LG V30 passed 14 different military-standard durability tests. Add to that an IP68 rating for water- and dust resistance, and you’ve got a smartphone that’s ready to go where you want to go and play where you want to play. By design, the LG V30 has Corning® Gorilla® Glass 5 on both its curved front and back. Talk about added toughness. Gorilla Glass 5 raised the bar for protection against drops. In lab tests Gorilla Glass 5 survived 1.6-meter drops onto rough surfaces up to 80% of the time — far outperforming conventional cover glass material. The LG V30 also features an impressive 6-inch OLED FullVision™ display. It provides much more screen to work with, while still fitting comfortably in your hand. For video and photography, this is LG’s best offering ever. The LG V30 has 15 color-grading presets (Cine Effect) that enable you to select just the right cinematic tone when shooting video. Its F1.6 (Crystal Clear Lens) glass camera lens provides the sharpness and color quality that rivals high-end DSLR cameras. And unlike traditional smartphone cameras, the LG V30’s Point Zoom technology lets you zoom on any area within the frame and at the zoom speed you desire.
