Jennifer is a native New Mexican who worked for the financial industry since 1992. She met her husband when they were both working and traveling the U.S. for the same financial service company. After getting married, they decided to go out on their own, so they moved back to Jennifer’s roots and the beautiful Organ Mountains. Jennifer helped open this firm alongside her husband, David. Although much of her time is spent outside the office raising their twin daughters, Jena and Sofia, Jennifer is still a crucial force behind the scenes.
