Jenni is a publishing professional and all-round lover of words. As a child, she made her best memories sat in bed surrounded by a pile of library books, multiple snacks, and dreams of one day working with words full time. Now an adult, she relishes her days developing and publishing new education/home learning products for a new generation of readers at Oxford University Press.
Outside of publishing, she is a keen writer interested in exploring the factors that shape identity and belonging, especially as they relate to education, faith, and/or food. Her creative work and input has appeared in GOOD Magazine, Cubes Magazine, and Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Mike Posner’s first collection of poetry. Her first book (co-authored with INSEAD Professor Virginia Cha) of narrative startup cases was published in 2013 by Routledge. She also maintains a personal blog, and is a regular contributor of food reviews to Foodie Magazine.
Currently a resident of Hong Kong, Jenni is a Taiwanese-Canadian that has also been shaped by years in the UK and Singapore. She graduated from the University of Waterloo with an Honours BA in Political Science and Social Development Studies, and is a big believer co-operative education. She is currently pursuing an MEd focusing on Education and Society in China at the University of Hong Kong.
