Jennifer has spent the last 17 years of her career helping incarcerated men and women receive their secondary education credentials and enter the work force with the assistance of both Federal and State grants. She has been involved with AmeriCorps, local literacy initiatives, Dawn Farms, and grant writing to fund afterschool education programming in local housing communities. Most recently, her work focuses on transition age young adults exiting the judicial system and returning to the community and families. 

As a young adult and a single mother, she faced homelessness and is now a proud first-generation homeowner. She also raised six children, three of which were not her biological children. She is most proud of her children’s success as they have entered the world of higher education and employment. Her oldest daughter is now in the process of becoming a foster parent herself.
