Jennifer graduated from the University of Denver after double majoring in Spanish and International Studies with an emphasis in Health and Development. She spent two years traveling with AmeriCorps (the domestic PeaceCorps) serving as a disaster relief worker and project coordinator. Her last project with AmeriCorps was at a homeless shelter for teenagers; from there she was recruited to be a life skills worker and family preservationist helping teenagers in foster care.
“I’m honored to work with amazing staff and foster families as we strengthen and heal children who need our love and protection.”
She worked at another child placement agency recruiting and licensing foster families and eventually became a home supervisor. She continued her home supervision role when she joined Hope & Home in 2010, and has taken on additional responsibility for conducting home studies for parents about to get their license.
She enjoys being part of an organization that is passionate about the well-being of children and families in need. “I’m honored to work with amazing staff and foster families as we strengthen and heal children who need our love and protection,” she says.
Jennifer and her husband, Preston, are the parents of two energetic little boys named Titus and Everett.
