Why are you writing for Patch?
I'm planning on studying journalism in college, so I contacted Jennifer to see if I could get some hands-on experience with writing and reporting for Patch before I graduate just to make sure it's what I want to do and to get a feel for what journalism is really like.

What is your favorite thing about writing for Patch?
I would definitely say the best thing about writing for Patch is getting to interact with the people I write about. I think it's so interesting to meet all sorts of characters and personalities right here in our community and network with people that I may have passed on my way to school every day, never knowing a thing about. It's just opened my eyes to how interesting and lively Emmaus and everyone living here can be!

Anything else you would like to tell me:
My guilty pleasure is watching The Bachelorette, much to the chagrin of my mom who thinks it's "insulting to humankind."

OMG I am so sorry Chrissy we were so busy tonight when you stopped in for your dress I didnt even recognize you!!! Or I would have given you a hug hug!!! You are the best Hun!!! Your interview and pics they were GREAT!! Remember those prom pics for us to display!!! Kim!!! (Carriage House Cleaners) <3
