A North Carolina native, Jennifer has called Colorado Springs, CO, Lynchburg, VA, New Orleans, LA, and Charleston, SC home since graduating from Elon University in 2003. She has spent time as a journalist, event planner, and sports information director. Now, the Birmingham newcomer is a full-time marketing professional and owner of Birmingham Stork Lady, a sign rental service dedicated to welcoming new babies home. Of all the hats Jennifer wears, her most important roles are as a wife, mother, daughter, and sister. She has been married to her husband Mike for six years, and together they have two daughters: a spunky 3 year old named Brooklyn, who is obsessed with Peppa Pig, books, and pigtails; and 18-month-old Blakely, whose nickname is Smiley (she loves watching her big sister!). As if that weren't enough excitement, the family is expecting Baby Girl #3 in April 2018. Jennifer also has a personal blog, www.beagleandbaby.com, named for her family's sweet five-year-old beagle, Cooper.

Work/Life Balance . . . Will I Ever Find You?

Over the last six months, I have come to a harrowing conclusion. Adulting. Sucks. Notice I didn’t say parenting. Although yes, sometimes parenting totally sucks. Especially when your two-year-old raises her eyebrows and calmly says, “You...
