Jennifer’s passion for helping families realize their full potential started when she served on PCAH’s board of directors in 2013. After becoming trained as a volunteer Stewards of Children facilitator, and seeing the immense need for families to have access to the tools and support to help strengthen their families to raise healthy children, she felt the pull to leave the corporate world of sales and marketing. Since becoming Executive Director in 2015, Jennifer with the board of director’s support, has helped PCAH secure funding to start two new programs: supervised family visitation and counseling for child victims or adult survivors of child abuse. With this growth of programs brought the creation of today’s Family Resource Center which is designed to help families have a central place for education and support and to give them the opportunity to transform their lives regardless of their past circumstances. A home filled with nurturing principles, compassion, and accountability leads to a thriving family and a strong community. Jennifer with her husband and three children have lived in Clarkesville for eleven years. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Organizational Management and her MBA in Human Resource Management.
