Jennifer thinks that there are just some things that you cannot turn your back on. In 2013 when a Ugandan environmentalist, Sylvia Namukasa, asked her for help to keep girls in her rural village in school, by providing sustainable period products, she could not say no. In 2014, with a handful of local Richmond Virginia volunteers, her husband and adult son, she founded Sylvia’s Sisters, a 501 (C)3 nonprofit. Jennifer and her team not only had a vision for Uganda but also for central Virginia schoolgirls. In 2016 they began to supply area central Virginia schoolgirls in need with period products. Jennifer continues to serve as president of Sylvia’s Sisters whose outreach has grown due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, serving many diverse Richmond area communities in need. Jennifer has a BS in Early Childhood Education and lives in Chesterfield, VA.
