Jennifer Degl, Author, “From Hope to Joy”

Those closest to Jennifer describe her as stubborn, exceptionally determined, and optimistic—and Jennifer agrees with them. And those are the exact traits that pulled her through her life-threatening pregnancy, the birth of her micro preemie, and the first four months of her micro preemie’s life in the NICU.

Jennifer is a wife, secondary science teacher, and rock collector, but her favorite role is being a mom. She resides in Putnam County, NY, with her husband and four children.
