Jennifer rejoined JCPRD in August of 2017 after taking a seven year hiatus, working for the City of Shawnee’s Park and Recreation Department. Jennifer grew up in Olathe and is no stranger to the parks system. She learned to drive in Heritage Park before being let loose on city streets, ran cross country at Shawnee Mission Park, and trained for her first (and probably last) half marathon on the Mill Creek Streamway Trail. Her favorite thing about working for JCPRD is the positive energy from coworkers and the community. In her free time she enjoys gardening and spending time outdoors with her husband, Allen, and their two year old son, Miles.
