Girl Crush is a
monthly feature which profiles awesome female creative/techie types I admire (and whom I may or may not want to bed).
- Who is she: (Former) Lead Interactive Developer at Happy Cog, Girl Develop It teacher, .net Magazine writer & lover of hovers

Why she's awesome:
Jenn is by far the most energetic person I have ever met. I'm pretty sure she has Red Bull running through her veins.
Earlier this year, Jenn, along side with Yesenia Perez-Cruz, launched Ladies in Tech, a site that encourages women in the tech industry to become speakers and further engage in the community. Recently I took this sentiment to heart and gave my first talk ever at a conference.
In addition, Jenn was named one of Mashable’s 15 Developer/Hacker Women to Follow on Twitter. She also writes for The Nerdary, has a regular column in .net magazine and was a contributor to The 2012 Pastry Box Project.
Plus, her energy is so awesome it's been known to kill the power of a building.
Ummm... "Girl Crushes"?
CNN defines a girl crush as "part jealousy, part admiration," and I agree. I love women who are uncompromising, whether it be in there professional or personal lives. I admire fierceness, intelligence and talent. The women in this feature embody that and more.
