Jennifer recently moved to Providence by way of Portsmouth, VA and her hometown of Warwick, RI. Jennifer has worn a variety of career hats, including those of administrative assistant, telemarketing campaign coordinator, nanny, and library assistant. She received her Masters of Fine Arts in Creative Writing from Solstice MFA Program at Pine Manor College, with a concentration in poetry. She writes creatively in English and in German, which she studied as an undergraduate at the University of Rhode Island. Following her graduation from URI, Jennifer taught English in German public schools for two years. During the summer between academic years, she volunteered with Project Friendship Beyond Borders, working with youth along the former border between East and West Germany. While living overseas, she travelled as far across Europe as she could and refined her palate for quality chocolate.
Jennifer’s passion for photography began in elementary school, when her dad gave her a hand-me-down Kodak Ektralite 10. She also enjoys reading– sometimes fiction, sometimes poetry, sometimes nonfiction– and hopes to try her hand at painting, tatting, and glassmaking.
