Associate Editor

Jennifer has a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science with minors in Technical Writing and Music from Rutgers University in New Brunswick. Throughout her college career, she participated in the Rutgers Marching Scarlet Knights, Pep Band, Concert Band, and Symphony Band, wailing away on both the mellophone and French horn.

In her downtime, you can find Jennifer reluctantly going to the gym, struggling to play string instruments, and hanging out with her goofy Australian shepherd.
