With a MA in Humanistic Psychology and a MFA in Creative Writing (fiction), Jenifer teaches writing using interdisciplinary, "humanistic" methods that honor the imperfect PROCESS of creating (as well as the Sisyphean desire to create a perfect product). Having to learn these lessons herself, of course, Jenifer has written rough drafts of both a memoir and a novel that are quite imperfect but bursting with potential. Two excerpts from the novel have been published in The Berkshire Review, one in the form of a poem. She enjoys living a rugged lifestyle, chainsawing her own firewood and mowing "the meadow."
