Jennifer ChesaK

Jennifer is a Nashville-based freelance journalist, editor, and adjunct professor with almost two decades of experience and a Master of Science in Journalism from Northwestern University's Medill. Her writing has appeared in Washington Post, HuffPo, Prevention, Runner’s World, Trail Runner, Women’s Running, Healthline, Doorsteps, SheKnows, and more. She also serves on Healthline’s Medical Integrity Team and operates as a fact checker. In addition to editorial work, her cornucopia of clips showcases a robust lineup of content marketing for several global and national brands.

Jennifer owns and operates an independent editing and publishing company, Wandering in the Words Press. She helps authors polish their manuscripts to perfection. Then she cuts through the red tape to get their indie books to market fast and with class. 

Teaching is also a passion for Jennifer. She is as an adjunct professor at Belmont University, with media studies and copyediting on her roster. In addition to mentoring students in Middle Tennessee State University's certificate in writing program (MTSU Write), Jennifer is also the managing editor of the university’s literary magazine, SHIFT. She enjoys teaching evening and weekend workshops through Nashville's The Porch Writers' Collective and Watkins College of Art, Design & Film.

 In her free time, Jennifer can be found getting dirty in her garden or running a muddy back trail. In a former life, she was a television reporter in her native state of North Dakota. Uff-da!
