In 2013, Jennifer joined Willoughby and Associates, a premier family law firm in downtown Denver and has specialized in family law ever since. She is experienced in cases of domestic violence, restrictions of parenting time, and both pre-decree and post-decree relocation cases.

She is an Arizona State University graduate with degrees in Political Science and Spanish Language and received her J.D. from the Phoenix School of Law.
