Jennie was born and raised in the heart of Mississippi. Being immersed in a region rife with history and culture led her to pursue a love of literature and history with her education. After graduating from Ridgeland High School in 2011 where she participated in multiple arts programs, Jennie was accepted to the University of Mississippi. There, the Ole Miss campus, history, and community exposed Jennie to a myriad of avenues for intellectual, spiritual, and professional growth. After exploring all that Oxford had to offer, Jennie graduated in 2016 with a Bachelor of Arts in English and a minor in political science.
In her idle hours, Jennie enjoys reading dystopian fiction, working on her own writings, walking nature trails, and trying to keep up with her three dogs.
