GIVE Speaker: Jennifer Kidwell

Jennifer is a Sacramento native who is passionate about the importance of mental and physical health, community service and foster-care advocacy. For the past 12 years, she has worked for the State of California, focusing on improving the quality of healthcare for inmates in California state prisons.

She and her husband own a fitness club in the downtown area of Sacramento, California (TITLE Boxing Club) which allows them to combine their love of fitness and strengthening their community through healthy engagement. They seek out opportunities to give back through fundraising for local programs, as well as opening their club for foster-youth to participate free of charge.

Jennifer has invested over ten years of volunteer work – mentoring girls and young women who are considered the highest risk in her community. She is a noteworthy leader in foster-youth advocacy and serves as co-director for The Glass Slipper, a local non-profit that is positively impacting the lives of girls and young women who have experienced foster-care through job and life skills training and mentoring. She and her husband’s passion to positively impact the lives of youth who have experienced foster-care ultimately led them to adopting their beautiful son from the system.

Jennifer’s hobbies include thrifting for vintage clothing and spending time outdoors.
