  • Jennifer has been a freelance writer and editor for over a decade.
  • With a background as an educator, as well as a culinary tour guide, Jennifer has a passion for sharing information about food and drinks, with a love for all that ranges from practical to the slightly absurd.
  • As a pun-loving food, drink, travel, and lifestyle writer, Jennifer also has a slight obsession with books, the Oxford comma, and cheese.


Beginning her freelancing career as a ghostwriter, Jennifer has mastered writing and editing for a wide variety of audiences. Now, Jennifer is a freelance writer with contributions published in print publications including Charlottesville Wine & Country Living, Piedmont Virginian, Virginia Craft Beer Magazine, Dine Wine & Stein, Edible Blue Ridge, the Baltimore City Paper, the Jewish Times, Her Mind Magazine, and What Weekly. She was also previously a frequent contributor to The Baltimore Beacon which published articles that garnered her awards in both 2014 and 2017. The former of those awards, a cover story featuring chef profiles, featured praise for doing “a masterful job telling the chefs’ stories, often in their own voices, as well as describing favorite dishes in mouth-watering detail." Jennifer's work has also been published online at sites such as Drink Baltimore, Baltimore Eats, Washington Eats, and Carter International Concierge.


Jennifer earned her BA from College of Notre Dame of Maryland before moving on to earn her MA from Goucher College. While her focuses were on liberal arts, education, and reading, both her undergraduate and graduate work helped her to hone her writing skills.
