Jennifer Grayson is an environmental journalist and the author of UNLATCHED: The Evolution of Breastfeeding and the Making of a Controversy, out now from HarperCollins.

Jennifer’s commentary and writing have appeared in The Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, The Huffington Post, USA Today, Natural Health and American Baby, as well as numerous online outlets and blogs. As a columnist for The Huffington Post, she contributed more than a hundred articles to the site via her popular Innovation Earth and Eco Etiquette columns for the Green section. Jennifer has also been featured and quoted in articles for Slate, Entrepreneur, Self, Psychology Today, Fox News Health, Discovery.com, BabyCenter, MomsRising, Earth911 and more, and has appeared on MSNBC, WGN, NPR and on many other TV/radio broadcasts and podcasts. She also serves as a board member of Climate Resolve, a high-profile organization connecting Los Angeles and California leaders and policymakers to prepare for the challenges of climate change.

Jennifer began her career like most journalists: As an operatically trained soprano with a degree from the renowned New England Conservatory of Music (after first attending The University of Pennsylvania). The daughter of a writer and editor and a bibliophile since childhood, her life has now come full circle.

Jennifer has nursed a lifelong fascination with our time’s vanishing connection to the natural world. UNLATCHED was born of this profound preoccupation — and of her most important work to date: Becoming a mother. She lives in Los Angeles with her screenwriter husband and two young daughters.
