Attachment parenting, blended families, and alternative education are some of the fields of Dr. Jen's research and experience. Her primary doctoral research involved looking at birth stories from both narrative and artistic expressions. She is especially interested in empowering women's childbirth experiences, and believes that having empowered, informed births is critical in empowering women as mothers.
