Jennifer was born in a small town in Indiana to a well known auto restorer. Growing up in the shop and at the track, it was inevitable that Jennifer would have a love for cars and a thrill for speed. After meeting the famed Shirley Muldowney at the U.S. Nationals in 1987, Jennifer quickly became drag racing's number one fan with dreams of one day competing with the best. Jennifer began racing in 1999 not only as a hobby, but as a lifelong passion.

Through the years Jennifer raced in several classes including Sport Compacts, Super Stock, and Nostalgia Funny Cars. She achieved success in bracket racing at local tracks starting out in a 16 second 1995 4-door Dodge Neon 5-speed. Working her way up from the bottom, she never lost sight on her ultimate dream.

In 2005 Jennifer married her Sailor of the United States Navy and moved to Hawaii. She would then compete twice a year back in Indiana during that time. With almost a four year break from what she does best, Jennifer is now taking the steps necessary to establish a professional racing career.
