Jennifer was hired in 2006 as our Digital Editor and was promoted in 2018 to her current position. A two-time U.S. Women’s Champion, she says she loves “the ability of chess to connect people from different cultures, ages and backgrounds. Chess is also a prism to analyze history and art.” She hosts our US Chess podcast “Ladies Knight” and is a frequent commentator on the web broadcasts for major events held at the Saint Louis Chess Club. She has even given a TED Talk. Outside of chess, she enjoys poker, writing, travel, and art.
