Jennifer was born and raised in Longview, TX. From there she went on to attend Baylor University in Waco where she majored in Accounting and International Business. Between junior and senior years at Baylor, Jennifer attended a summer mission trip in New York City, where a love for that city and its people was born. After graduation, Jennifer moved to New York City to work on the college ministry staff of Campus Crusade for Christ (now Cru) where she worked for five years, leading bible studies and discipling students at Columbia, Barnard, and the Fashion Institute of Technology.
While living in NYC, Jennifer was married to Ryan. Shortly afterwards, they moved to Philadelphia where Ryan attended seminary and Jennifer put her accounting degree to work, working as an accountant for ADP. After three years, Jennifer and Ryan moved back to NYC where Jennifer transitioned home after having her first child, Molly, followed by Charlotte two years later.
After eleven years in the urban northeast, Jennifer moved back to the great state of Texas when Ryan received a call from Rockwall Presbyterian Church. Shortly after arriving in Texas, Jennifer and Ryan added Lewis to their family through adoption.
Jennifer has always been involved in the life and administration of Rockwall Pres since arriving on the scene. In 2016 she became a part of the official staff (volunteer), where she serves as Ministry Coordinator, administrating the various ministries of the church, including Sunday volunteers and Community Groups.
