Director of Media & CommunicationsAt a young age, Jennifer’s stylized self-portraiture was heralded as the new big thing in stick figures, though only by her parents. Eventually, this led to her studies in the Communication Arts department at Virginia Commonwealth University, where she got her BA. After some years in freelance artistry and customer service, she left her native Virginia on a midnight plane to England in hot pursuit of an MA in Graphic Design and the opportunity to frustrate people by not pronouncing “aluminum” the English way. (She succeeded in both ventures.)
When not using her skills for good as BTW’s administrator of media and communications, Jennifer enjoys baking, living vicariously though Poirot novels, and contemplating going for a run.

Financial SpecialistI am a native Virginian, born and raised. I worked on Capital Hill for the US Congress for many years and have a strong background in copy editing and publishing. One of the more fun jobs I had was working on a continuity series on Baseball. It is a great way to learn to love the game of baseball. However, hockey is still the sport I think takes the most skill.
I also spent 18 years working at the Birchmere Music Hall in Alexandria, where I was able to meet many artists and enjoy a wide array of music.
I have two grown children that I couldn’t be more proud of. I love long walks on stormy beaches….I know, everybody says that but it really is true….When I grow up I plan on buying an island in the Caribbean and living there with my goats, sheep, dogs and a few close friend.
I love to garden but find that it is easy for lawn care to get the best of you if you aren’t vigilant. I would much rather grow a vegetable garden than a manicured lawn.
I fancy myself as a fiber artist…I love to spin, weave, knit, crochet. When my daughter was in Elementary school I taught her Girl Scout troop how to knit and we made a total of 103 infant caps for the local hospital.
I am a certified hang glider, a volunteer for the Virginia Democratic Party and a member of the Smith Island Crab Skiff Association. I am most happy when I am near the sea, salt water and sand.
