Jen loves stories that leave readers thinking about the purpose of life, the resilience of people, and the courage it takes to make the world a better place. A lifelong learner and lover of education, she taught middle school English Language Arts and led a state-wide teacher preparation program at a nonprofit. Jen holds a BA in English from Dickinson College and a master’s degree from Johns Hopkins School of Education. She lives in Arkansas with her partner, Rachel, and a clowder of neighborhood cats.

As a queer woman, she believes in the importance of finding one’s authentic self. She hopes readers will discover that the best moments of life happen in the small details, not the monumental times of success.

Jen is a phenomenal listener. She’s easy to talk to, very likable, and incredibly kind. Most importantly she’s willing to have difficult conversations and push you, in a way that is both motivating and loving.
