Jennifer is a native East Coaster, born in New York City and graduating from University of Vermont in 1985. Before even graduating, Jen was a natural business mogul who partnered with a few others to plan and launch what became a chain of 10 Bagel Works stores throughout New England, with sales of $4 million and a staff of over 150. In her role in this enterprise, Jen gathered a thorough knowledge of a huge variety of business needs, including real estate development, finance, marketing, operations, human resources, management information systems and community relations. She took a keen interest in seeing that the business grew in a socially- and environmentally-conscious manner, and continues to guide the company on the Board of Directors. Designing and building her own home in Vermont, Jen served as her own general contractor and completed the process in seven months. Jen moved south for the winter in 2002, and delighted in New Orleans’ unique architecture and culture. Since she completed her real estate license in 2004, Jen has been actively helping buyers, sellers and investors in the New Orleans area. Her business acumen is an asset for real estate investors and developers, and with a home in New England, she is keenly aware of what second home buyers look for in a property. Yet, on a personal level, her special passion is to provide a supportive environment for first time home buyers, striving to make the home buying or selling process as enjoyable and relaxing as possible. In addition to real estate, Jennifer currently teaches yoga and Pilates and is working on a non-fiction book.
