You're Laughing With Me, Right?
Jennifer grew up in rural Montana with a love of animals and a dream of becoming the proud owner of a private petting zoo. She joined the Army at the age of 19 where she served proudly until the birth of her first child. Now she has three wonderful little girls. As an Army soldier and an Army wife, she has lived in California, Texas, Korea, Hawaii, Missouri, and Alaska. She has a flare for anything outrageous or goofy, like dressing up pet cows and taking house chickens to play dates. She stays actively involved in animal rescue organizations and loves fostering homeless critters. Jennifer enjoys gardening, painting, and writing about all of the silly things that happen in her life.
