In addition to her trial and counseling work, Jennifer regularly handles appellate work at state and federal appellate courts and state supreme courts. Drawing on her experience as a law clerk for The Hon. William Ray Price, Jr. of the Supreme Court of Missouri and an extern for The Hon.

Outside of work, Jennifer is an avid runner and hiker. She enjoys races of all distances and recently met a personal goal by qualifying for the Boston Marathon in 2017.
