Jen graduated from Colorado State University with degrees in Speech Communication and Technical Journalism. Shortly after graduation, she began to work for The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer on PBS where she assisted their Science Unit. This event initiated Jen’s interest in sharing scientific developments with a broader audience. She decided to make the move to San Francisco where her internship with Wired Magazine increased her enthusiasm for open-access information. In her spare time, she enjoys developing her baking expertise and all things outdoors.
