Jenn is passionate about preserving life histories in a way that even teenagers will be interested in reading. Her passion for personal histories comes from her belief that everyone is fascinating and has a story to tell that can inspire and uplift their family. Completing a personal history project is no small feat, and it can be disappointing to see it gather dust on a bookshelf, but if histories are polished and presented in a fun, appealing way then their impact on future generations will be far greater (because they will actually be read!).
Jenn has a degree in English and studied oral history editing at Brigham Young University where she learned the art of transforming the spoken word into a fun and easy-to-read narrative that still retains the person’s voice, so that it feels like you are having a conversation with the person as you read their story. Jenn believes everyone’s stories can (and should) be told in an interesting and engaging way. She currently lives in Utah with her husband and three children.
Even with all the new digital tips, tricks, and software for writing your life story, people still struggle to complete it. Wherever you are at in the process, Jenn will get it done for you, and you will have a beautiful book to share with your family.
