A midwesterner at heart, Jennifer grew up in between the cornfields of America’s Heartland. Claiming Iowa as her home state, she bleeds Hawkeye black and gold. Jennifer studied modern history, political science and international relations at the University of Iowa and the Brussels School of International Studies for her graduate degree. Her desire to understand various cultures and how countries deal with the impact of war led her to live in Europe for a bit as well as travel to the Great Lakes region of Africa as often as possible.
Jennifer has enjoyed working at international organizations and NCC over the years – learning from all the incredible experiences and people she’s had the opportunity to cross paths with.
When her away message is up, you can bet she’s either a) travelling internationally b) at a baseball game (Yankees and Cardinals are her favorites) or c) spending time with family in the Midwest.
