She's traded drug cocktails, injections, and early morning line-ups at the fertility clinic for juice boxes, playdates, and evening PTA meetings. She's also the author of an honest but light-hearted novel inspired by her first-hand knowledge of the ups and downs of fertility treatments and the huge emotional burden that rests on those having trouble conceiving, making her a unique voice in this seldom-mentioned topic. Sometimes it helps to find a way to laugh during the hard times, a coping mechanism Jen and her husband learned in their similar quest to become parents.
Having accomplished both goals, Jen’s latest dream is to live in a small village in France and eat croissants.

She loves to spend time at the cottage in the summer, ski in the winter, and travel whenever she can.
