Biography

Jennifer was born and raised in Bear Lake, Michigan, a small town located just southwest of Traverse City. She received her undergraduate degree from Michigan State University in 1999. Following her graduation, Jennifer moved to Detroit and began law school at Wayne State University, here she received her degree in 2003. Jennifer was admitted into practice in the state of Michigan in November 2003. During law school, Jennifer was a member of the Student Trial Advocacy Program (STAP) and worked at the Free Legal Aid Clinic (FLAC). She also volunteered at Covenant House, an organization dedicated to the prevention of teenage homelessness. She began her legal career as a Staff Attorney with Legal Services of South Central Michigan. She focused her work on representing victims of domestic violence and low-income community members. In addition to diligently representing her clients, Jennifer spearheaded the successful establishment of a divorce clinic for victims of domestic violence. In addition, she was a member of the Calhoun County Domestic Violence Coordinating Counsel. Jennifer was also the Secretary for the Calhoun County Bar Association.
