She likes to spend time with her family, but she also loves to do research on topics ranging from the contents of Roman cosmetics to the geologic history of the planet. Of particular interest to her is anything to do with Roman history, handicrafts, all facets of paleontology, and pegmatites and pegmatite minerals.
Jennifer pursued her Masters degree in Geological Sciences after a lifetime of loving geology. She wrote her thesis on the geochemistry of Mount Mica, a world famous mineral locality in Maine. Her groundbreaking research proved conclusively that the two complex pegmatites at the Mount Mica locality came from two distinctly different magmatic sources.
Jennifer has written more than 50 professional reports for environmental compliance. These documents range from single page letter reports to 150 page government documents. Many of her reports have been used as the basis for scientific research or documentation.
Jennifer has written numerous articles for publication, on subjects ranging from Roman gemology to the proper methods of curing olives. She enjoys doing original research almost as much as she enjoys writing articles. Her articles range from one to five pages in length.
