TreeHugger Welcomes Jennifer Hattam!

Jennifer worked as an editor at Sierra magazine for 9 years, starting out as a novice on environmental issues and ending up as the Sierra Club's green lifestyles "expert."

In 2008, she relocated from her hometown of San Francisco, California, to Istanbul, where she is working as a freelance writer and editor. Besides contributing environmental stories from Turkey and around the region to Treehugger, Jennifer blogs about the trials of learning Turkish and other aspects of being a yabancı (foreigner) in Istanbul. She indulges her passions for travel and photography as often as she possibly can.
