Jennifer is thrilled to be the new Advancement Manager for Portland Trails.  A Portlander by birth, Jen previously served as Director of Development and External Relations for The Restorative Justice Institute of Maine, helping transform the state’s punitive culture to one of reparation and healing.

Jennifer is committed to building strong communities for all Mainers. She has worked for the American Red Cross of Northern New England, served as President of the Maine Women’s Fund, and received the Bowdoin College Spirit of Service Award, presented annually to a community member who embraces a genuine commitment to improving the lives of others through service.

Jennifer and her wife, Sara, live in South Portland with their two rescued dogs. When not focused on philanthropy and fundraising, Jennifer can be found planning her next biking vacation, eating in the latest Portland restaurants, volunteering in a first grade classroom at Reiche School, and drinking lots and lots of coffee.
