Jennifer has worked in the nonprofit sector for over 15 years as a public policy advocate. She holds a B.A. from St. Catherine’s University, the largest all women’s university in the nation, which instilled the values of education and leadership while influencing women to empower themselves.
Jennifer has experienced firsthand the lack of safety resources, education, employment, and mental health care available to both active-duty and veteran spouses. She has made it her mission to advocate on behalf of military families to ensure access to these, and many more, resources.
Jennifer is a Coast Guard spouse and understands the challenges that come along with the transition from active duty to civilian life.
