Jennifer Kwok


Jen Kwok is Science Friday’s bookkeeper and Dothraki language tape pitch woman! A native Californian, Jen grew up in the Mojave Desert, where she learned such valuable life skills as walking against 40 mph winds, sunset appreciation, and slowly backing away from scorpions without getting stung.

After graduating from Binghamton University with a B.S. in Management, Jen took a brief detour into the world of Big Four accounting before combining her passions for business, education, and the arts. Having specialized in non-profit accounting for more than 10 years, Jen has worked at such NYC-based organizations as the Children’s Museum of the Arts, HERE Arts Center, and Jazz at Lincoln Center.

Outside of SciFri, Jen is a Google-able comedian, musician and actress who has appeared in film (Eat, Pray, Love), television (Showtime’s Nurse Jackie, MTV’s Middle of the Night Show), and an elaborate Internet prank about subway panhandlers. In her spare time, Jen pets her goldendoodle Lucy and dreams of someday owning an alpaca and llama farm. Jen is a proud #hufflepuff.
