Blog Posts

These posts are articles and blogs Jennifer has written for professional journals and for her newsletter, Voice Lessons.

"Voice Lessons (Jennifer’s monthly newsletter) is the only newsletter I read word for word and all the way through. It always has great thought provoking content and links. 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."
