Pronouns:  she/hers

Jenny is a first year MA student originally from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. As an Alverno College alumna, a college built on a feminist curriculum, she was given opportunities to unravel particular research interests which include but are not limited to: gender in the early modern period, historical female figures, Mexican folklore, magical realism, women in literature, gender-based violence and advocacy. She has a fond admiration for writing and hopes to one day find the tools necessary to incorporate facets of her interests in the work she eventually produces. She draws influence from Latina and Black feminist scholarship, and her favorite novel, The House of Spirits by Isabel Allende.
