Like most working mothers, Jennifer’s career took a circuitous route. After finishing at Tufts University outside Boston in 1992, she graduated from Hofstra University Law School (yes she’s licensed and in good standing) and then studied voice and acting. Soon, Jennifer met her future husband, Keith Hutt. They married within a year and a half, settled in her hometown on Long Island – right next door to her parents and her sister, Stacy – and had two children. Once they reached school-age, Jennifer was finally able to focus on her career and the unexpected on-air opportunities that presented themselves.
