Hello, my name is Jennifer Ross, and I am 44 years old. I live in Philadelphia, where I was born and raised. I currently work part time as a Manager for a company that manages luxury apartments throughout the Center City area. I am a mother of 4. I have a grown son and 3 girls: one is in high school, while the two youngest are in middle school.
I’ve attended multiple schools throughout Philadelphia. Gesu, L.P. Hill and then I finished high school at Strawberry Mansion. After high school I started my family. I juggled between being a stay-at-home mom and working part time. In 2017, I started working full time as a Security Desk Receptionist where I was employed for 6 years. I gained a lot of experience and skills and received training and certifications.
I have dedicated my time and energy into raising my children. In particular, I have been a full-time caregiver and support for my oldest daughter who has a Congenital heart defect. I am very involved with volunteering and contributing to my children’s education and extracurricular activities.
Aside from my children, my interests include embracing creativity. I would like to create a blog empowering women on positive lifestyles, cooking, and empowerment. I would also like to start a small business for my daughters. My hobbies include writing, painting, home decor, and cooking.
