Jennifer was born and raised in Miami, Florida, where she grew up with her Whippet, Molly.  She moved to SW Florida after getting her real estate license, and got involved in some local non profit organizations helping rescued animals.  Her passion for animals began to play such an influence in her life she decided to change career path to work with animals.  Jen joined the Ruffgers team in October of 2019 as one of our team members at our Naples Campus.

Jen has continuously demonstrated her passion for animals, and proven to be an extremely reliable member of the Ruffgers family. She was transferred to our Bonita Springs Campus to help with the rapid growth it was experiencing. There, she began taking on leadership duties, and proved her management abilities quickly. When the Assistant Manager position became available, Jen was a clear choice. We are pleased to have Jen on our management team, as we know our guests receive the highest level of care from her and her team. At home, Jen has 4 cats, and enjoys painting, DIY projects, crafts and antique shopping in her spare time.
