Born and raised in Oregon City, Oregon, Jennifer has a soft spot in her heart for Willamette Valley and most things “Oregon.” She came to Seattle for undergrad and never left. Jennifer studied history, German, and found herself in the middle of history unfolding as she witnessed the opening of the Berlin Wall in 1989. In fact, a wanderlust keeps her thinking about places far and near; if she’s not on a trip, she’ll travel vicariously through you!

Jennifer spent 14 years in the Admissions office at Seattle Pacific University, the last six of which were as Director working with students from across the U.S. She is married to Don; together they chase their teenage sons to baseball games, music events, swim meets, and Scout outings.

Jennifer has been worshiping at UPC since 1993, and prior to working at UPC, she and Don both served terms as Elders. Jennifer loves serving Jesus in community!
