Jennifer Lord Paluzzi


Jennifer received her degree in journalism from the Boston University College of Communication. After having a fairly typical career as a reporter and editor at community newspapers in Massachusetts, she jumped from her first layoff into digital media. As the founding editor of Central Mass News, she turned a small website covering the town of Grafton into a company with about a dozen hyperlocal websites. After the company was shut down by a buyer, she joined the Lowell Sun as a digital editor, later merging its weekly newspapers into a single regional, The Nashoba Valley Voice. While at The Sun, she also spent two years as a journalism adjunct professor at Emmanuel College. After her third media layoff, she founded Grafton Common, which she ran for three years before joining The Concord Bridge.
