MEET YOUR CANDIDATE
Jennifer Thomas Griffin believes we need to get back to what made this country great: Family and God. We need family involvement in ALL things for Jenison Public Schools.
The biggest thing for Jennifer— the board needs to listen to the parents. The board works for parents, and for our children. If parents can’t come to a board meeting, especially as parents are working so hard right now to make ends meet, the board needs to make the meeting available to parents.
Fresh faces and ideas are missing from the board, which would help ensure the district is doing what’s best for children. As a self-employed physician, Jennifer can dedicate the time necessary to the board position and be present for any meeting, which she thinks is especially important.
Jennifer believes in America, and has a constant desire to learn. Our history is important and should never be forgotten or replaced, but rather learned from.
Jennifer was born and raised in Jenison. She is the daughter of a 47-year Spectrum Health nurse and the granddaughter of a longtime Hudsonville teacher. Jennifer and her husband of almost 25 years, Jerry, live in Jenison with their son, a senior football player. Her family shares the same core values.
Jennifer is a graduate of JPS, GVSU and Dr. William M. Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine. After practicing in Indianapolis for 6 years, and Texas for 12 years, Jennifer returned home in 2017 and set up her practice as the owner and sole operator of West Michigan Podiatry House Calls, PLLC.
Jennifer is a member of Armed Women of America. She is also a double chapter leader (Rockford and Dorr) and state leader for Michigan. She holds multiple instructor certifications in firearms training through both the NRA and USCCA.
