Hi, I'm Jennifer

I joined Larson Gross in the spring of 2022 after spending over 25 years in the nonprofit sector, most notably as the Executive Director of the Washington Apple Education Foundation for over 20 years. I earned my MBA from Washington State University, have a bachelor’s degree in politics, philosophy & economics from Eastern Oregon University, and in 2017, completed a Strategic Perspectives in Nonprofit Management course at Harvard Business School.

For many years I have been involved in Girls on the Run as a coach for 3rd – 5th grade girls enrolled in the self-esteem building program and recently began serving as a behind-the-scenes supporter helping to organize the program’s local 5k year-end celebration and fundraiser.

I am originally from Chelan but now reside in Wenatchee. In 2020, I had the special honor of being named the Apple Citizen of the Year by the Washington State Apple Blossom Festival.
