Foster Care Home Supervisor - Colorado Springs
Jennifer Medina received her bachelor’s degree in sociology and has always worked with high risk children.

Jennifer and her husband have two children, one biological and one adopted from the foster care system. She is grateful that she can use her personal experience when supporting foster families. Jennifer keeps busy with her boys’ sports and school activities, and she also enjoys reading a good book or walking their dog.
