Jen is on the cover on Elle november issue.
On motherhood and marriage: “My ambition shifted when I had kids in a way that I didn’t anticipate. I became more ambitious for my life as a whole, and for that kind of health and happiness of the overall family unit. And that very much includes my husband and very much includes me. My husband is always the one saying to me, ‘You have to work, you have to work. This is part of who you are. We’ll figure it out.’ That’s powerful, when your partner has that serious mantra.”
On the best piece of advice she’s ever received: “It’s recycled from Ma Ingalls from ‘Little House on the Prairie’—something my mom quoted: Happiness is your own responsibility. Weeping may last through the night, but joy comes in the morning.”
