Assistant Director, Garden of Hope Ministries

Jennifer attends Hopewell Baptist Church and has been a member for years.  She is an accountant holding a Master's Degree in Accounting.  Jennifer was one of the first chair persons at the inception of Garden of Hope.   Sharing the vision of a home to house the ministry outreach and offer a place of study, sharing and companionship among Single Mother, Jennifer supported Marlana from the beginning in 2009.  Being a single mother for 23 years of two daughters and now a YaYa to five grandchildren, she is well versed in the single mother family unit.  Jennifer stepped away from serving in GOH for a two year period in order to focus on her daughter's needs. However, she was instrumental in assisting Marlana with obtaining our 501c3 status in 2012 before stepping down.


Last year she sensed the leading of the Lord to return, and to commit in a major capacity.  We excitedly welcomed Jennifer back in 2016.  Now serving as Assistant Director, Jennifer has a fresh new mindset and an excitement for the growth of Garden of Hope Ministries.
