Hello! I’m Jennifer. I’m a Washington, D.C.-based writer and editor specializing in parenting and children’s topics. My work has appeared in All You, Fit Pregnancy, the Los Angeles Times, Parenting, TIME For Kids, and Scholastic children’s magazines; as well as on babygizmo.com and readersdigest.com. I am also a regular contributor to care.com and Scholastic News Online. My husband, Keith, is a lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Army.
Since meeting in 2005, Keith and I have lived and worked in New York City, Northern California, New Jersey, Colorado, and Southern California before moving to Northern Virginia in October 2014. Our twin boys were born in June 2011 on Father’s Day, and our lives have been full of adventure (and mischief) ever since! Our baby girl arrived in September 2014.
Double Duty Twins (Plus One!) follows the joys, triumphs, and challenges we face as a military family raising three small children. I also write about pregnancy and parenting topics, including those relevant to military families and families with multiples. I share hard-won tips and advice, product and travel reviews, ideas for family fun, and more.
As moms and dads, we pull “double duty” in so many aspects of our lives: working and parenting, meeting the needs of our spouses and our kids, caring for our families while maintaining our own identities. It’s the hardest job in the world, and I’m here to help!
