Marine Parent and Volunteer
Recruit Parents Facebook Groups Volunteer,
Jennifer is a Platoon Parent for 1st battalion Charlie Company at Parris Island.
Jennifer lives in a Marine Corps town in coastal North Carolina. The mother of a recruit at Parris Island, she has 3 other children and her retired Marine, significant other still at home with her. Jennifer served in the Marine Corps herself and was also a Marine spouse for 13 years, 3 of which were spent as a Drill Instructor wife at MCRD San Diego.
As a Drill Instructor wife, Jennifer took part in a support group and enjoyed helping recruit parents on their journey through boot camp. Especially nice was meeting them at the graduations. Since experiencing bootcamp as a recruit parent, Jennifer knew she was called to help others through the roller coaster of emotions. She is very eager to share Marine Corps knowledge and to support other parents along their personal journey.
