Jennifer Denson

Current Vocation: Senior Graphics Designer, College of Family and Consumer Sciences
I'm a graphic designer by trade. I have designed many logos for nonprofits and political campaigns, including the Athens for Everyone logo. I'm a very good knitter. I'd say almost an expert. I also have an uncanny ability to memorize song lyrics, but have no rhythm. I make up songs for my toddler all the time, mostly about how it's time to put her toys away or eat her dinner. I grew up in Kansas, which seems to be an interesting fact to people who do not live in Kansas. I played softball for years and I'm trying to teach my daughter to like baseball and softball.
