BENEFITING: GLEASONS GIVE A KID A DREAM
EVENT DATE: Nov 16, 2013
A bit of globetrotter, Jennifer was born in Maryland, raised in the Micronesian islands of the western Pacific, resided in Hawai'i for a stretch and eventually ended up in upstate New York for college.
Quite a whirlwind.
Having grown up with the rich, intoxicating beauty of the Pacific islands, she naturally spent most of her days outdoors, contact sports of all kinds bringing her back to that time in her life in fact.
Firmly planting herself in the tri-state area, Jennifer successfully manages being a wonderful mother to her 2 year old with her career in finance and her 6-days-a-week boxing schedule. For this self proclaimed stubborn and resilient woman who's never one to back away from a challenge this strength and perseverance no doubt comes from her hero, her own mom.
From a charitable standpoint, she's always found it important to give back to others and finds people often underestimate the impact a simple act of kindness can have. In her case, that simple act of kindness involves getting in the ring for a few round!
