Jennifer was born and raised in Bethel, Connecticut. She attended Western Connecticut State University where she obtained an Associates of Arts degree in 2007. She moved to Florida in 2011 to escape the cold Connecticut winters. After moving to Florida she commenced working as a paralegal in 2012, and has worked for both large and small firms. Jennifer has been with the Law Office of Laura A. Olson, P.A. since November 2015, and quickly became an invaluable part of the firm’s legal support team. Jennifer has been happily married since 2014, and enjoys traveling, concerts, kayaking and hiking with her husband, Tim. Jennifer also is an animal enthusiast, is active in various dog rescue groups, and is the proud owner of a golden retriever (Shea), a chocolate lab (Emmy), and her most recent rescue – a sweet little pitty mix (Lucy). Additionally, and maybe most important, Jennifer just happens to be Henry’s (the office dog) most favorite person.
Henry was born February 25, 2019, and is a rescue, adopted from the Suncoast Animal League, a wonderful organization that facilitates rescue, foster and adoption of animals in need who would otherwise end up in shelters, or worse. Henry has been a part of Laura’s family since he was 12 weeks old, and has been the official Law Dog for the firm since the day he was adopted. Because he is very young, he is still learning the ropes, but he is a very good greeter and loves everyone. He also provides much comic and stress relief during the day. Henry’s hobbies are chasing and playing with his sibling cats, going to the Davis Island Doggie Beach, destroying all dog toys as quickly as possible, playing tug of war, riding on the golf cart, eating Chick-fil-A chicken nuggets, and cuddling (lots and lots of cuddling). Henry also is a horse show enthusiast, and he has yet to meet a horse that he does not like.
