About Me

A graduate of Harvard University and a former film development executive, Jennifer cooks and writes in Los Angeles.

After graduating from Harvard University, she began her career in feature film development. Highlights include working for Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes, New Line Cinema, and The Mayhem Project. In 2008, she co-produced the feature film, Make It Happen, for The Weinstein Company. In 2009, she launched the popular food blog, Domestic Divas. Her recipes and articles have been published by xoJane, Fox News, Parade Magazine, Whole Life Times, Meatless Monday, and many other publications. In addition to recipes, she also writes books, TV, and film projects.

Originally heralding from St. Croix in the U.S. Virgin Islands, Jennifer grew up in the Star City of the South (home of the world’s largest freestanding illuminated manmade star). After graduating from Patrick Henry High School (Go Patriots!), she worked her way north for college (and learned how to say “Park the car in the Harvard Yard” with a proper Boston accent), before she absconded west in pursuit of her Tinseltown dreams… and a non-arctic climate.

After almost a decade spent slaving away on some respectable (but mostly subpar) movies, she finally took the plunge (into the deep end of the pool without a life vest) and began writing full time. Some days, she thinks that was undertaken during a moment of pure insanity, but most days she knows that it was the best decision that she ever made (aside from marrying her paramour of more than fifteen years and adopting her mini-goldendoodle puppy, whom she affectionately calls “The Adorable Monster”). Her debut novel is currently searching for a permanent home.
