Jennifer Betts

A diverse freelance writer, Jennifer Betts has been writing education and career articles for over 10 years. She has written and edited for several websites and publications including Study.com, Degree Directory, Education Portal, Our Everyday Life, EHow, Centerfield Media and Chron. In 2013, she earned the ‘Editor of the Month’ award from her peers for  ‘being thorough’ and her ‘quality responses to instructors’. Jennifer graduated with a bachelor’s degree in graphic design, as well as a minor in photography. In addition to writing, she has worked as a graphic designer, tattoo artist and photographer for several years.  

Tattoo and Body Art

As a lifetime painter and sketch artist, Jennifer began working in a tattoo shop part-time while pursuing her degree. Apprenticing for over a year, she moved into her own chair for a small multi-chair shop to appease the growing clientele. This move gave her vast experience in all different types and forms of tattoos, including tribal, flash, Chinese, nautical and fantasy, but her specialty lies in full color and custom pieces. Jennifer and her husband also opened and ran their own successful shop for a little over a year.

Currently, Jennifer tattoos preferred clients on a part-time basis. She is knowledgeable not only in types of designs, but placement, aftercare, pain relief and the best pigments for different skin types. Jennifer consults with customers and creates custom designs, including full sleeves and back pieces. She has started to branch off to examine henna tattoos, glow-in-the-dark and white ink designs.

Web & Graphic Design

After graduating, Jennifer worked as a spec ad designer for Gannett Directories before becoming a full-time freelance writer. This afforded her the chance to work with multiple clients and really hone her talents in advertising and web design. She has created numerous websites for friends, family and her derby team Mid Michigan Derby Girls, in addition to working on flyers and promotional materials. 

Photography

Jennifer has been a photographer since she was in high school and took a black and white photography class. While she has played with landscape and nature photography, photographing people has always been her passion. She loves the way light can play on features or the twinkle in a child’s eye when they smile. She currently owns her own company Remembered Moments and specializes in wedding, family, seniors, children and special occasions. She is knowledgeable of camera techniques, lighting and posing.

Homeschooling & Kids

Jennifer has worked as a tutor and mentor to disadvantaged children for nearly 20 years. Additionally, she currently works as a substitute teacher and parapro for several different school districts in her area. This allows her first hand experience with working with children, learning techniques and curriculum development.

Other Interests and Hobbies

Jennifer has a passion for life and extreme sports. She currently trains and plays for her derby team and skateboards with her sons. A hippy at heart, she loves natural healing techniques and partakes in mediation. In addition to her professional writing, she is writing a fantasy novel that she hopes to have published in the next year. To learn more about Jennifer, please visit her website.
