I am married and the mother of 4 boys. In 1991 I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Child Development from Purdue University in W. Lafayette, IN. I work at Homan Elementary as an instructional assistant and I enjoy taking pictures and competing in obstacle races. Currently I am a member of Write-On Hoosiers, Indiana Writers' Consortium, Prairie Writers Guild, SCBWI, and Calumet Region Photo Club. Six years ago I co-founded Magic Hour Writers with classmate Judy Whitcomb. My poems and pictures can be found in several local publications. My photos have been on exhibit at the Indianapolis International Airport, the Indiana Welcome Center, and are even on a few magazine covers and a book.
Jackie Huppenthal Photography and the writing groups listed above are on Facebook.
