Jennifer is currently seeking representation for her first novel, Graft, which features four women—a con woman, a card sharp, a spiritualist, and a ghost named Captain Jane—fighting for their lives and financial independence in 1890s Oregon.

Jennifer holds a Ph.D. in Philosophy of Religion from the University of Chicago and was a Tin House 2020 novel workshop recipient. She has worked in academics and finance, and her work has appeared in Litbreak Magazine, Sundial Magazine, and The Copperfield Review.

 She lives in Portland with her partner and children and draws one-panel cartoons to relax.
