Founder of Building Boys

About Jennifer L. W. Fink

Jennifer has spent the past 25+ years living with and learning about boys. She’s survived potty training, sword fights, and homework battles. She’s spent countless hours in the bleachers and on the sidelines and strongly believes that all athletic pants should be brown or green (NEVER white!). Because of her boys, Jennifer knows far more about fish, dirt bikes, snowmobiles, lawnmowers, butterflies, dinosaurs, and cars than she would otherwise.

As a journalist and podcaster, Jennifer has worked with some of the world’s top “boy experts,” including Michael Gurian, Janet Allison, Michael Reichert, Richard V. Reeves, and Warren Farrell.

Jennifer’s articles about boys include:

• The Washington Post: We’re Missing a Major Mental Health Crisis: Teen Boys are Struggling Too
• Your Teen: How to Teach Consent to Boys – Without Shaming Them
• Parade: 11 Tips for Surviving — and Thriving — with Boys in the House
• FOX News: Men Are Not Monsters
• The Washington Post: Why Schools Are Failing Our Boys
• U.S. News & World Report: 8 Ways to Nurture Boys

Jennifer serves as an advisory board member of The Boys Initiative and is a member of the American Society of Journalists & Authors (ASJA) and the Association of Health Care Journalists (AHCJ). She loves camping, scuba diving, and spending time with her sons.
