Jennifer was one of the very first freelance writers to contribute to many of the Bay Area's Patch sites when they first launched in the fall of 2010. After contributing for more than a year and a half, Jennifer was hired on as an official Patch employee in May of 2012. She is very excited to be a full-fledged member of the Patch family. In California, Jennifer served as the interim editor for Milpitas Patch in the South Bay, an associate editor for the San Mateo and Foster City Patch sites on the Peninsula, and then served as the local editor for RedwoodCity-Woodside Patch, before transferring to the east coast in February of 2013. Jennifer is now the local editor for both Herndon Patch and FairfaxCity Patch. She loves being a part of these two communities and getting to know northern Virginia. Jennifer currently lives in Burke with her husband, Alex and her two sons, Connor, born in Sept. 2007, and Oliver, or "Ollie," born in May 2010.
