Jovin has been profiled by NPR's "Here and Now" and the New York Times and joined us on the phone for an interview in advance of her Buffalo appearance.

Jovin says she does not represent the "grammar police," the people who use social media to chastise others who don't use proper grammar. She helps anyone who has a grammar question, young and old. Jovin says she once met a young woman from El Salvador who sought her help in writing a college application essay.
