Graduating in 1991 with a BFA in Theater, Jennifer moved from Ohio to Chicago to pursue a theater career. After a decade as an independent contractor working for dozens of professional theaters doing Prop and Set Design and Stage Management, she accepted a position at a small training and consulting firm, where her duties included creating informational packets and meeting summarization and documentation.
In 2003 Jennifer launched her own desktop publishing business, building on her design skills and partnering with Gretchen Pisano, who she met while working for the corporate training company. For the next 10 years, Gretchen and Jennifer worked very closely, developing a unique style of tools, graphics, visuals, and concept models. Jennifer is self-taught on the latest design software and requirements, and manages a team of designers, transcribers and proofreaders to create and fulfill everything from business cards to billboards, advertising, graphic representation of data, and information synthesis.
Jennifer is profoundly happy living in the Chicago suburb of Des Plaines with her husband, her daughter, and her cat.
