Jennifer is a Missouri native who moved to Florida to earn her bachelor’s degree from the University of Florida. After undergrad, she managed companies of all sizes and operated her own small business. Her previous business experience enables her to truly understand the issues facing her corporate clients.

She competed in both regional and national competitions for appellate advocacy and consistently won top honors for her writing and oral arguments. These experiences provided the foundation for the appellate practice Jennifer enjoys today, including her practice before the District Courts of Appeal, the Florida Supreme Court, and the 11th Circuit.
Before moving to private practice in northern Florida, Jennifer served both the federal and state judiciaries, first as a legal extern to the Honorable Stephan Mickle of the Northern District of Florida, and then as a trial court staff attorney for the judges of Florida’s Eighth Judicial Circuit.
