Jennifer Griffith’s work as a writer has evolved over two decades. She began her career as a technical writer and editor for IBM writing Microsoft Step-by-Step guides. After moving from Seattle to San Francisco, Jennifer launched her career in technology sales. She is now a recovering technology sales leader, writer, and podcast host.
A businesswoman who walked away from her career to pursue a creative dream, Jennifer leverages her time spent understanding her life experience to build a platform of reflection for others. The vision for her podcast was born during a multiyear writing project. It was during the process of writing her mother’s story that she realized if we start at the beginning — reflecting on who our mother was — we begin to share our personal narrative in the purest form.
Jennifer's passion for writing stems from her curiosity to understand how our past shapes who we become. She believes reflecting on our individual experiences is one of the purest forms of communication that fosters a sense of community and compassion.
Jennifer lives in Oakland, California with her husband, two lazy cats with terribly unoriginal names (Kitty and Marilyn), her son Drake, and two bonus kids, Allie and Conor.
