Jennifer has volunteered and served as a consultant for numerous non-profit and youth related organizations. As a mother of five, she has a deep passion for inspiring teens to reach their full potential. Jennifer’s youngest son came to his first NTLP camp in the summer of 2012. Amazed by his reaction and personal growth in just three short days, Jennifer was inspired to devote her professional skills and love for youth to reaching as many teens as possible through NTLP.
