Jennifer Georgia, Ph.D.
Jennifer grew up in Montgomery County, attending Holton-Arms School, where she was captain of the “It’s Academic!” team, and scored 800 on the Verbal portion of the SAT (one of 27 students to do so out of a million tested that year). She graduated magna cum laude from Princeton, and then got her Ph.D. in English from Harvard, where she also worked as a Teaching Fellow in writing, 18th century literature, feminist literary theory, and the history and structure of language. After earning her doctorate, she turned down a professorship to go live in England, where she became a speechwriter, producing talks on everything from women and world peace to endangered oceans that have been delivered at the White House, before Congress, at the UN, and at universities and conferences around the world. Jennifer is not quite as serious as she sounds, however. In addition to speeches, she is writing a series of mystery novels. She has kids of her own with very different learning styles, one at Princeton, the other an independent video game designer. She likes memes, Marvel movies, cool science, theater and digital art
