She has won two Emmy awards, three Edward R. Murrow awards, and has twice been awarded Best Reporter in Utah by the Society of Professional Journalists.

She also served as the spokesperson for Wednesday’s Child, highlighting foster children currently awaiting adoption.
After the birth of her first daughter, Jennifer left news to spend more time at home and pursue other opportunities.
