I was born in Maryland and moved to Frisco, Texas in the 9th grade.  At the time Frisco did not have a lacrosse team so I played for Plano with Jordan Little, our High School assistant coach.  Upon graduation I went to the University of Mount Olive where I placed lacrosse at the DII level.  I then moved to Liberty University to finish out my college years play at the DI level.  I was a defender at both universities. 


I graduated with a degree in Exercise Science Fitness Specialist.  I am currently working at Rogers Elementary School as the FLEX teacher as well as coaching swim lessons at Texas Ford Aquatics.  I had so much fun coaching last year and look forward to another great year with GLCOF!!

A dancer all her life, Jennifer was first introduced to lacrosse 8 years ago when her son started playing.  Her family became huge fans of the sport, and she was thrilled when her daughter decided to pick up a stick with Fury 4 years ago.  Jennifer is a native Texan but has lived in various areas of Texas.  Frisco has been home for the past 12 years.  She graduated from The University of North Texas with both Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Accounting.  Following graduation she spent 5 years in the tech industry performing internal audits which required extensive domestic and occasional international travel.  While the traveling was fun, Jennifer hung up her hat and is now a stay-at-home mom who volunteers for several organizations... most importantly, the Frisco Fury!
