Personal & Professional Passions
Jennifer grew up in a working-class family in a rural town in East Texas. She credits her family with teaching her the value of hard work, a lesson that propelled her to become a first-generation college graduate and the attorney she is today.
Jennifer’s professional passions are informed by her own experiences. In her words, “I’m a product of public education, starting in kindergarten all the way through law school. I’m blessed to have had the opportunities I’ve had, and I want those same opportunities to be available to all children. I’m proud to have spent the first part of my career in public service, working hard to improve educational opportunities for all children in Arkansas.”
In her free time, you can frequently find Jennifer binge-watching reality TV or chasing after her toddler. She and her husband love spending time outdoors and have even run a few marathons together.
Jennifer finds running marathons to be a fitting metaphor for the work she does, reflecting, “I ran my last marathon less than a year after my daughter was born. It was one of the hardest things, both physically and mentally, that I’ve ever done, and I still consider it one of my biggest personal accomplishments. Running a marathon takes dedication, hard work, and sacrifice, and these are the same qualities that I bring to my clients every day.”
