Jennifer graduated from Duke, with honors, in 2004 and became a member of the Florida Bar and began practicing law the same year.

“This Island is my rhythm and Islanders are my people! I think the Marco Island community is unique in its closeness and intimacy—the business community is very interconnected and dependent on working together. I’ve always done my best to build connections and develop relationships, building bridges instead of burning them.” Jennifer’s goals when she works with clients are to skillfully advise and assist clients smoothly through whatever matter they see her for: whether it be a real estate closing, or an estate plan, or a probate, or a condominium or business matter. Her goal is to prevent conflict through effective documentation and communication, and in the end, to ensure above all, the client is happy.

She has been on the Marco Island Charter Middle School Board for the last 14 years, where she is Past President and current Treasurer. She is a proud member of the Marco Island Noontime Rotary Club and is Past President, Secretary, Treasurer, and current Membership Orientation Chair. She is a Paul Harris Fellow.
