About

My name is Jennifer. I was born in the 1970’s in San Antonio, Texas—home of the Alamo and Spurs. I’m married to Brad, and have two kids: Zachary and Vincent.

 

We’re a family of geeks. We love Star Wars, Star Trek, DC and Marvel film franchises (and shows), as well as Doctor Who and Sherlock. We have two cats: Bellatrix Lestrange Rarity Johnson (black/charcoal female tabby) and Tonks Dammit Bader Johnson (male brown/grey mackerel tabby).

I’ve got a bachelor’s degree in Studio Art (Illustration) and a master’s degree in Technical Communication (with an emphasis in UX and a minor in Sociology), as well as multiple fitness certifications for yoga and group training. I also study martial arts and hold multiple black belts in several styles. That’s a fancy way of saying that I write for a living and teach yoga and MMA/Escrima on the side.

We found a decently good test online and took a Meyers-Brig test. That’s when I found out I was one of two “introverts” in the office. My type is ISTJ, or the Logistician (the other introvert in the office was an INFP, or Mediator). Not long after we took the test, my fellow introvert retired… leaving me as the only introvert in a room full of extroverts. At home, I am equally surrounded, though my youngest flits between introvert and extrovert depending on circumstances. So what you get is someone who is quiet, action-oriented, responsible, and prefers to work in the background surrounded by people who are just the opposite.  It’s all good, though, every group needs someone to crunch the data and be the voice of reason.

 

Here are some of my favorite ISTJ fictional people followed by some real people:

Twilight Sparkle

Martha Jones

Aragorn son of Arathorn

Severus Snape

HRM Elizabeth II

Angela Merkel

Just looking at it makes me smile… but not too much.
