Originally from Cambridge, Ontario (a town her family has called home for nearly two centuries), Jennifer has been able to live and spend time all across Canada. She has completed an Honours Bachelor of Arts in Canadian History at Wilfrid Laurier University, a Post-Graduate Diploma in Art History from the University of British Columbia, and a Masters of Museum Studies at the University of Toronto. Successfully completing internships within the Canadian Art departments at both Sotheby's and the Art Gallery of Ontario provided Jennifer with further insight into the many sectors of cultural consumption.

After finishing her studies, Jennifer was able to share her passion for Canadian history and visual culture with the public through her roles as an historic interpreter and researcher at Black Creek Pioneer Village (Toronto, ON); as interpreter and education assistant at the Parliament Interpretive Centre and Enoch Turner Schoolhouse (both Ontario Heritage Trust properties in Toronto, ON); and most recently, as Administrative Assistant at the Association of Nova Scotia Museums. In her spare time Jennifer is an enthusiatic miniaturist, needlepointer, and freelance historian and writer for museums and galleries.
