When I first met Jennifer, through her husband who played college football with my husband, I just knew she was my cup of tea. Her energy was assertive, unapologetic, and ambitious. Since that day in 2018, all of the above remains true.


We connect on many levels – being mothers of young children, semi-seasoned wives, and business professionals with a relentless entrepreneurial spirit. I’ve been blessed to witness Jennifer’s epic alignment with her purpose to turn viable product-based businesses into multi-million dollar ventures.

Today, Jennifer is the Managing Partner of a private equity and consulting firm currently managing a diversified portfolio worth over $1B consisting of science and technology for smart city development, construction, product supply chain, and logistics companies.

As you know, I am focused on the conversation about pouring more capital into black women-owned businesses, supporting and scaling them to be vehicles of generational wealth. Jennifer’s expertise in private equity, her regal energy, and authentic nature are just what we need to shore up our outlook on this topic. My hope is that the entrepreneurs within our community learn how to prepare to ask for capital for your endeavor. In our conversation, on the couch we discuss all things marriage, motherhood, and finding your superpower.
