Jennifer grew up surrounded by lots of family that enjoyed camping and being together and is still happiest surrounded by family outdoors. After completing high school she decided to see what “big city life” would be like and attended Saint Mary’s university and studied sociology and gerontology.

Her years at Costco have seen her in various management positions and she now enjoying learning in a clinic environment within the hearing aid industry and truly feels blessed to be able to work with people on something so life changing for them. Her husband reintroduced her to Alma and Fundy Park when they met and she instantly fell in love with the whole area.
