Meet Jennifer

Adopted at the age of two into a bustling family that would ultimately include six children (three natural and three adopted), Jennifer learned early on that a life filled with love and opportunity is a precious gift that should not be taken for granted. 

Like most parents, having a child gave Jennifer's life a whole new sense of purpose. But when her son Kyle suddenly began showing signs of chronic illness at the tender age of two, that purpose changed from raising a 'normal', healthy child to fighting for her child's life. 

After attending Virginia Tech, receiving an MBA from Georgetown University and building a successful career in marketing for more than 20 years, Jennifer began devoting her time to writing and promoting the SuperCaptainBraveMan series as a way to educate youth on empathy, compassion and friendship to kids with a diverse range of health issues, so that all children can grow up feeling as loved and as special as they deserve. 

In her free time, Jennifer enjoys a multitude of hobbies: working out, practicing yoga, drumming, gardening, sewing, jewelry making, painting, reading, shopping and sleeping.
