Jennifer publishes a monthly blog, "Voice Lessons." For the last 8 years, she has provided monthly commentary on communication challenges and a set of cool resources. Check out recent posts, categories and archives to explore more.

I often wonder when we send these things out into people’s inboxes if they actually engage with what we take the time to write and I thought Jennifer should know that her work is read, thought about and appreciated."
