Jennifer Tucker joined SHRA in January 2019 as a research assistant. She spent her childhood in Barre, Vermont, and her adolescence in Bloomington, Indiana. She graduated from Indiana University with a Bachelor of Arts in United States History and is currently working on her Master of Arts in Applied Historical Research at Boise State University. Her thesis involves a study of the evolution of Boise’s cemeteries, which allows her to explore her interests in environmental history and the US West. She is excited to refine her research skills and explore real-world applications of history through her role at SHRA. When she isn’t working, Jen is most likely running, hiking, or drinking coffee with friends.
