Jennifer is an Associate Professor of Art History at the University of Minnesota Duluth. This job opportunity brought her and her husband, Geoff, to Duluth in 2006. Soon after arriving in MInnesota Jennifer joined the Junior League of Duluth (JLD), an organization focused on improving the lives of those living in the Twin Ports and in training women leaders. During her time as an active member of the JLD, she helped to rebuild Playfront Park and was involved with the fundraising for, design of, and final building of the deep-winter greenhouse in West Duluth. Through the latter project she learned a great deal about food insecurity in our communities and forged connections with individuals and organizations that inspired her to seek out new opportunities. Most recently she supported the initiatives of Duluth Thrives to raise awareness around Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and their impacts and to educate other on who best to create trauma-informed spaces where all may “thrive.”
At UMD, Jennifer teaches classes that explore the histories of visual culture, architecture, and the built landscape. She also has led several study abroad programs to Italy which allow her to share her love of the Italian landscape and its rich history. She always seeks out opportunities where she can learn alongside others.
