She earned her bachelor's degree in nursing at Villanova University in Villanova, Pennsylvania, and then earned a master's degree in nursing at the University of Pennsylvania. She also attended the Adult Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner Program.
Jennifer developed a passion for working with the geriatric population as a nurse, and witnessed firsthand the implications of cardiovascular disease. This experience led her to work in the field of cardiology as a nurse practitioner, particularly heart failure and valvular disease.
A lover of all things outdoors, when not at work, Jennifer is often found snowboarding or camping in the mountains. She enjoys the music scene in Denver and is a fan of all genres from blue grass to hip hop.
