CAC Family Advocate
Jennifer joined Advocates for Children as a volunteer in early 2015. She completed her internship with Advocates in the Fall of 2015 and joined the staff of A Better Way Children’s Advocacy Center as a Family Advocate in January 2016. After 18 years in the pharmaceutical field as a Certified Pharmacy Technician, her desire to help children and families in the community led her to pursue her college degree and a different career pathway. Jennifer graduated from The Pennsylvania State University World Campus in 2016 with a Bachelors in Human Development and Family Studies, Lifespan Human Services Option. She and her family recently moved to Bartow County from Cherokee County to be closer to her work. Jennifer is grateful to be a part of the Advocates family and is thankful to be given the opportunity to provide assistance and support to the children and families served by Advocates for Children.
