Growing up in Lawton where SportQuest was founded, Jennifer had the opportunity to travel with SportQuest for the first time in 2000 as a high school senior to Ireland. Once SportQuest got in her blood, there was no going back! Over the next eleven years she traveled on numerous other PWP Projects to Ireland, Belgium, and England. She even worked for a year in the SportQuest office after graduating from college. In 2010, Kent approached her about serving long-term in Belgium, and after much prayer and preparation, she knew that was where God was leading her.
Jennifer's heart, deep love for God, and her desire to serve Him wherever He calls her, led her to move from Oklahoma to Belgium in July 2011. She wears many hats for the SportQuest Belgium team, but one of her main roles is managing the SQ BE website and social media platforms. She also plays a big role in the day-to-day life of the summer interns, helps with follow-up programs, and provides leadership for the summer project. Since Spring 2015, she has co-led a team of Belgians to South Africa on a PWP Project and has developed a big heart for this nation.
Jennifer graduated from Oklahoma University with a degree in Health and Exercise Science. She played basketball all through high school and still has some nice post moves. She is a huge Bob Dylan fan, loves dogs, and thinks everything tastes better with a little cinnamon.
