Jennifer’s broadcasting career spans four decades in news.
She became the first morning news anchor in St. Louis, when KSDK launched Today in St. Louis in the early 1980s. For 22 years, Jennifer co-anchored the morning news with Art Holliday.
After leaving KSDK in 2014, Jennifer worked as Director of Humane Education at the APA of Missouri. She and her group of volunteers visited area schools, teaching children empathy, kindness and responsible pet guardianship. Jennifer started a Prison Art Program where offenders at three Missouri prisons created pet portraits to raise money for homeless animals.
Jennifer earned her Bachelor’s degree in Radio-TV-Film from Bowling Green State University and her Master’s in Social Work from Washington University. Jennifer had a private therapy practice for five years.
She adopted her dog, Pollyanna, from the APA over five years ago and the two live in St. Louis County.
