Hi, my name is Jenn.
I'm a journalist at Metro Silicon Valley. Previously, my work has appeared in Diablo Magazine, The Daily Beast, Metro Silicon Valley, SFgate.com, SV411.com, Bitch Magazine, East County Times, Product Design & Development, San Jose Mercury News, Nevada Business Magazine, Tracy Press, Thought Catalog, East Bay Express, Manufacturing.net, Design World, PayScale.com, InsideFacebook.com,AllFacebook.com, j. Jewish Newsweekly, Los Gatos Magazine and AOL's Patch Media, among others.
Lately, you'll find a lot of my work at San Jose Inside.
During the course of my career, I've covered grisly high-profile murder and torture cases, city hall beats, heated elections, the bureaucratic tangle of school beats and profiles of storied authors, educators and otherwise notable folks. My mug's appeared on the Dr. Phil Show, Larry King Live, Geraldo Rivera at Large, Headline News, all sorts of local news stations and Nancy Grace, to name a few shows and not to mention countless radio interviews and print mentions.
I shared with my colleagues at the Tracy Press the 2010 first place prize for breaking news from the California Newspapers Association for our coverage of the Sandra Cantu/Melissa Huckaby murder case.
Since 2012, I've lived in San Jose with my hilarious comedian boyfriend, Ben, and codependent African Gray parrot, Dorian.
