She majored in Italian and French at the University of Virginia and went on to earn a MA in Italian from Middlebury College, taking a year of courses at l’Università di Firenze and Middlebury’s Florence campus, and a summer at Middlebury College in Vermont. Jennifer earned a MS in Secondary Education from University of Pennsylvania, and began teaching Middle School and High School Italian and French in New Jersey and Delaware.
