About Jennifer

The processes of writing and editing share similarities with anthropology, in the sense of digging beneath the layers to find the structure, of story in the case of writing and of cultures or cities in the case of anthropology. It was a class for her anthropology major in college that first drew Jennifer to interviewing and storytelling and uncovered her love of life story that is the thread that runs through all of Jennifer's work. Did we mention that Jennifer is also a quilter? Whether for a professional bio, a profile, or marketing materials, Jennifer brings together your varied experiences to highlight the best of who you are through what she calls "the story in the story." Contact her about your project today. You can be sure that, in the words of one author whose work Jennifer has edited, "She really wants your project to succeed!"
