Meet the Author

Jennifer Ley Crutchfield has always celebrated Chattanooga history. As an army kid, hometown was the soft taste of a MoonPie, crisp refreshment of a Coca-Cola or history leaping from library books on bases in the United States and Latin America. Jennifer graduated from the University of Maryland, returning to Chattanooga as an adult. She publishes the Chattanooga Parent Magazine and is a relocation agent for IOR Global Services and Volkswagen employees on international reassignments.
