Jennifer Kongs

Managing Editor
B the Change Media
Lawrence, Kansas

Before joining B the Change Media, Jennifer spent six years as Managing Editor of Mother Earth News magazine. Her passion for the subversive power of growing food, making soap and having fun all the while led her to the homesteading-lifestyle publication's pages. Now, looking further to the positive impact businesses have the potential to make in the world has brought her dedication and leadership to B the Change Media.

Jennifer graduated from the University of Kansas with a dual degree in environmental studies and geography. She headed up a Fair Trade awareness student organization, led alternative spring breaks to El Salvador, and worked on an organic farm outside of her time in the classroom.

When not at her desk, Jennifer frequents the local running trails, cultivates an organic garden, raises pastured pigs and chickens on a growing homestead with her husband, Tyler, and whips up culinary delights in her country kitchen. She spends a considerable amount of time reading books and magazines with her beloved cat, Lloyd, on her lap.
