Strong Family Values


It all started when…

Jennifer grew up in a military family, moving around the United States, settling in Michigan in 1980.  Jennifer graduated from Grand Valley State University with a Bachelor of Science and then a Masters in Public Administration in 1992.  

Jennifer started her public service career as the Downtown Development Director for the City of Otsego before becoming Assistant to the City Manager in the City of Kalamazoo.  

While she left her public sector job to raise her five children, Jennifer did not leave public service.  She served on Wayland's Planning Commission and is currently serving her seventh term on Wayland's City Council.
