Jennifer has focused her career helping advance child welfare, conservation and social justice causes. Before coming to Families Together, she worked in the DC area for the Ocean Conservancy and Thrive DC and started a non-profit consulting business. As the Development Director at Families Together, she works with the Board of Directors, staff, donors, volunteers and partners to build a growing community of supporters working to end family homelessness in our community. Originally from North Carolina, Jennifer is thrilled to be back and living near so much of her own family.

As a child, I loved going “home” to the family farm in Eastern NC. I got to play outside at night, swim in the creek and listen to the grownups swap stories.
