Jennifer served in naval operations throughout the world, as well as in joint operations in the Balkans and the Persian Gulf in the 1990s.

As a Navy Commander, her final assignment was as the chief intelligence officer for the USS Nimitz Carrier Strike Group from 2001-2004. With the Nimitz Strike Group, she deployed for Operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom in 2003. She lives in the “Inland Empire” of southern California, blogging as The Optimistic Conservative.
