A graduate of the University of Florida, Florida State University and Chamberlain College of Nursing serves as Administrator of the Joanna Francis Living Well Foundation. She is mother to Mabry (16), Pace (13) and Briley (6). She has been married to her high school best friend Todd Taylor for 18 years and resides in Tallahassee.
Jennifer began her relationship with Joanna Francis as a fellow baseball mom and friend. Her previous 10 years as a human resource management with GAP Inc. served to provide ideas for organizational structure as Joanna described concerns about her difficulty managing the patient experience and the role of motherhood. As a Nursing instructor at TCC, she was exposed daily to other patients describing the same challenges with balancing multiple roles while making an effort to get well.
In 2011, Jennifer founded Joanna Francis Living Well Inc. in an effort to offer a resource to patients and the nursing community which would make a change in the patient experience for the better. Jen rallied members of both the baseball community and the local medical community to solicit initial funds to establish the foundation. She continues to act as solicitor of the foundation and oversees daily operations.
