Jennifer (“Jen”) is a self-proclaimed travel geek. Her favorite spot to relax is the beautiful resort town of Interlaken, Switzerland, which she first visited as a toddler. The Alpine city of Annecy, France is a close second.
There’s nothing Jen loves more than discovering (and writing about) how to find a good bargain. It’s this passion that’s responsible for her addiction to the fascinating world of credit card points and free travel.
Jen, an educator with a Master’s in Education, lives in Charlotte, NC along with her three children.
