About Jennifer

Jennifer Lader helps people communicate in writing the ideas that will bring their goals within reach. Jennifer believes that people connect through story. To find the story, she honed her natural interviewing skills while earning a bachelor's degree in anthropology. She has interviewed hundreds of people, some famous, others “ordinary”; to Jennifer, they are all fascinating because everyone has a story to share. In addition to her abilities as a writer and her experience as a newspaper and magazine editor, she holds a master's degree in public administration and applies project management skills to every endeavor. Jennifer is a member of the Pennsylvania Women's Press Association and the Nonfiction Writers Association. Her hallmarks:

Active listening

Story-finding skills

Personalized attention

Compelling results

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!"

On a recent visit to Roosevelt Island, a lesser known part of New York City, stones lay nearly everywhere in sight. Originally home to the Lenni Lenape tribe, the island became…

Where the runaway imagination goes

Last summer, my vegetable garden ran away and inspired me to do the same thing. The garden ran away with weeds, no see ‘ums, and platter-sized squash leaves. In consideration of this and of the previous years’ invasions of cabbage moths, ground hog and poison ivy, I’ve given up. The…
