Jennifer Wohletz
publisher, editor, photographer, book designer

Jennifer leads Mackinac Memories Books – the publishing side of our business endeavors. She approaches every subject as a story waiting to be written and told in pictures. After graduating from Michigan State University, she served as a magazine editor for corporate clients while also studying and experimenting with photography. Many of our books utilize Jennifer's photographs to visually tell the story. Her images focus on the wonder of nature and often reveal surprising, fresh perspectives when human-made and natural elements merge in the island’s landscapes.  She also uses her eye for composition to design custom frames for our customers' art and memorabilia at Main Street Art in Milford, Mich.  Jennifer is a board member for the Mackinac Arts Council and member of the Independent Book Publishers Association, Society of Children's Book Writers & Illustrators and Village Fine Arts Association.
