Meet Jennifer

Literary Arts Educator & Published Writer

I have over a decade of teaching experience,  mentoring young writers in a variety of academic settings. Years ago, I earned an MFA in Creative Writing at Mills College & I've published fiction, poetry, and memoir. 

I foster students’ unique talents, equipping them with tailored skills to succeed. As a published writer, I understand the challenges of writing, and I love mentoring teenagers so they may discover their strengths and confidence.

If you have questions, connect with me via chat or through my contact page.
