Jennifer Blaise Kramer

Jennifer was raised among sawdust with a family immersed in construction and development and she’s been writing about home and design ever since. A native Californian, Jennifer received a master's degree in journalism from Boston University, fell in love with a New Englander, and then moved to Minneapolis—twice. In addition to working as a senior editor for Mpls.St.Paul, she’s written for national and regional publications including Boston, Sky, and Coastal Living. She lives in Linden Hills with her husband, two kids, and black lab. You can usually find them all covered in paint, knee deep in some home project or escaping the mess at her happy place: Hunt + Gather.
