About Jen

Are you looking for a fast and reliable audio editor to tidy up your podcast? Do you want to use music and natural sound to make your podcast stand out? I have 20 years of audio editing experience and a real passion for the craft. I am a radio reporter and print writer, so I can create compelling narratives from raw recordings and offer scripting as well. 

My radio reporting has been heard on BBC, NPR, and public radio stations across the country. Skillet - the podcast I created, hosted, and edited - was named a Best Podcast of 2019 by WBEZ Chicago. I am a graduate of the Salt Institute of Documentary Studies.
