Biography:

Jenifer Greenwood has worked for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for 24 years—writing, editing, and managing, spending 10 years as the assistant managing editor of the Liahona, the Church’s international magazine published in up to 50 languages. Her current assignment is as an audience manager for teachers and leaders in the Priesthood and Family Department.

She graduated from Brigham Young University in 1993 with a bachelor's degree in English and immediately began work on an M.A. Before she wrote a thesis; however, she started working for the Church as an editorial intern. Twenty-six years later, she graduated from BYU with a long-sought master's degree, making the switch from English to public administration.

She’s a self-taught amateur in anything she does but enjoys tasks that involve neatly ordered squares: the New York Times crossword puzzle, patchwork quilts, Minesweeper (back in the day), and FamilySearch.
