After graduating, she served as a federal law clerk to United States District Court Judge Anthony A. Alaimo. She was also named to the Order of the Barristers (for outstanding oral advocacy) and the Order of the Coif (recognizing law graduates who graduate in the top 10% of their class). Originally from Eastman, Georgia, she moved to the Atlanta area to begin her law practice in 2002 and has lived here ever since. She is a member of the Leadership Georgia Class of 2008 and is the past-President of the University of Georgia's Law School Association Council. Jennifer is also a Master with the Joseph Henry Lumpkin American Inn of Court. She has been named to Georgia Trend Magazine's "40 Under 40" list that recognizes Georgians "under 40" who "will lead our state's commercial, cultural, academic and governmental institutions into the future" because of her work on behalf of Georgia consumers. She has also been chosen as a Rising Star, a Georgia Super Lawyer, and as one of Georgia Trend's Legal Elite. In 2013, Jennifer was recognized by the University of Georgia as one of its "40 Under 40" alumni who "have made an impact in business, leadership, community, educational and/or philanthropic endeavors."

Last week Richard Yarbrough, syndicated newspaper columnist, entertained the Rotary club members with what must have been five jokes in the first five minutes. Then he continued throughout his presentation poking fun at our political system. Richard was making a joke when he stated over and over that "God lights my way." I'll not give away the punch line since you had to be there, but needless to say his humor and controversial satire left the room laughing and wanting more.
Richard likens his writing style as somewhere in between Mark Twain and HL Mencken. He is a Southern philosopher, political pundit and straight-shooting humorist all rolled into one. Seen weekly in nearly one million households throughout Georgia, his column is an artful mix of comedy and candor that leaves readers amused, inspired or enraged, but always engaged!

Invocators, as per the "Make it fun and they will come." theme, have a joke ready!
