Jennifer’s interest in law began at a young age, with shows like People’s Court, Matlock, Perry Mason, and most distinctly, Punky Brewster, molding her interest in the justice system and demonstrating the influence that an attorney can have on the world around them.
After graduating from Hawaii Pacific University with her Bachelor of Arts in Literature, Jennifer spent the next seven years traveling and teaching, most notably in South Korea, Poland, and France. When she returned to the states after working abroad, she returned to grad school; it was during this time that Jennifer made the decision to attend law school.
Having graduated from Gonzaga University School of Law in 2014 with her J.D., Jennifer went on to work as an Indigent Criminal Defense and Deputy Criminal Prosecutor, before becoming a Deputy Civil Prosecutor for the child support division. It was in this role that she learned how to navigate the complexity of family law cases, helping a number of families through complex parentage establishment, child support modification and adjustment, and child support enforcement and contempt cases. Jennifer enjoys being able to use her extensive experience in family law to truly help her clients with their cases. Jennifer is a strong proponent for families navigating divorce and custody cases, and who desires an attorney on their team who feels strongly about protecting the children involved, and ensuring an outcome is reached that is not only the best-case scenario for the client but for the entire family.
Originally from Southwest Washington, Jennifer was taught from a young age the enjoyment of time spent outdoors, and the value of honoring and exploring the world around her. The love for nature that she learned as a child has stuck with her into adulthood, and has translated to a wide array of interests and hobbies that she appreciates today. When she’s not helping families through their family law matters, Jennifer enjoys spending her free time studying and practicing snake husbandry, learning about chemistry and quantum physics, and working on craft projects. As an ordained interfaith/inclusive metaphysical minister, Jennifer enjoys the opportunity to read philosophy and religious/spiritual texts. She is active in the queer community and has an appreciation for Korean culture, including Korean dramas, food, language, history, and politics. She has also studied Russian, Chinese, Hawaiian, Korean, Polish, French, Arabic, and Spanish, and enjoys learning to read languages that utilize texts outside of the Latin/Roman alphabet.
