Jennifer Sanders

Jen was born and raised in the DFW metroplex. She now lives in Rockwall on a family "compound" with her husband and 9-year-old daughter (9 going on 18!). Her parents and brother's family live on the same patch of land. They have had cows and chickens (and dogs, cats, hamsters, and fish). Jen graduated from Texas A&M Commerce with her master's in counseling and almost finished her doctorate in Educational Leadership. She has worked at a school counselor for all levels and in the special education world. She now works from home with an online school in the state testing department—it's the best of both worlds! When she's not driving her daughter to all-star cheer, sideline cheer, or girl scouts, she's saying YES! to something. There's not much spare time left, but she likes to spend it cooking, buying supplies to craft with, planning things months in advance, reading, coaching her daughter's sideline team, serving on the PTA, listening to Christmas music year-round, and Starbucks.
