Jennie LOVES babies. She was drawn to Harvest Home as a place to spend time with her teen daughter and share their love of chubby thighs, sweet giggles, and baby laughter. It didn’t take long for Jennie to fall in love with the moms, as well. She values her roles as volunteer and board member for creating relationships and using her skills, knowledge and trial by error experience to help the young women of Harvest Home build the families they dream of. Jennie is a TV Producer, Public Relations professional, wife to Dan, mom to Maddy and step-mom to Lara & Sasha. She loves all of those jobs – not necessarily in that order.
