Writer, activist, worker bee, Jen Epstein was raised by two mental health professionals and suffered as a child from anxiety and irrational fears. These fears evolved over time into Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. Despite this, Jen received her BA in communication arts at Ramapo College of New Jersey, and an MA in media studies at The New School. In 2013, she completed a documentary arts fellowship at UnionDocs in Brooklyn. Jen currently works as a project manager for the nonfiction media company Discovery. She lives in Brooklyn, New York.
