Jennifer was studying for an English degree in Lubbock, Texas, when, at the age of 22, she had an illness that caused her to go blind. As a result, Jennifer had to navigate the complex governmental benefits system. It was a life-changing experience that made her want to redirect her life to help others in her community. Jennifer changed her major to study psychology and received a B.S. in Occupational Education from Wayland Baptist University. She then went on to the University of Texas School of Law, where she graduated with honors. Jennifer joined the firm after graduating and has worked to help her clients plan for their futures, access Long-Term Medicaid benefits, and protect their assets.
