GL Charlie Company & Asst Coach (Parris Island)
Jennifer is a very proud Marine mom from Fort Myers, Florida who has been a Marine Parents volunteer since October of 2016. Jennifer serves as Group Leader for 1st Battalion Charlie, Parris Island. She is also the Coach for Parris Island volunteers. Jennifer's Marine is the first in her family to join the military. She looks forward to providing the encouragement and support to others who have a son or daughter going through the boot camp journey.
Jennifer is originally from the suburbs of Chicago and has called Florida her home for more than five years. In addition to her recruit, Jennifer also has a daughter who is currently in high school. Jennifer is a huge dog lover and this passion led her to starting her own dog boarding business. She is also an active volunteer with a dog rescue and provides foster care for orphaned dogs until they find their "forever" homes.
Jennifer found Marine Parents soon after her son left for boot camp. At the time, she was constantly searching for information and trying to learn as much as possible to help her through this process. The information and support from Marine Parents has helped Jennifer navigate her way through this journey. She realized that volunteering would not only educate her in every aspect of boot camp and the Marines, but would also allow her to provide support and encouragement to others as they go through their own personal journey with their recruit.
