Joining the Garden as the office receptionist in the spring of 2007, Jennifer has since taken on website and membership operations. Her tasks include database entry, processing memberships and donations, updating the website and creating the bi-monthly e-newsletter. Spending her week days in a friendly, upbeat and beautiful environment makes coming to work fun and exciting for Jennifer. She enjoys meeting members and guests visiting the Garden and being a part of such a significant community resource. In her free time, Jennifer enjoys reading, baking, playing with her dog, Phoebe, sewing and creating jewelry for her handcrafted jewelry business, Dear Friday.
