As Executive Vice President, Jennifer works closely with the Bognet executive team and is oversees many aspects of the firm including corporate strategy,  and customer & community relations. 

During her tenure as Executive Vice President, she cultivated talent and promoted from within to build an outstanding executive team, and she was instrumental in expanding a small family-owned business into a premier firm that builds award-winning projects for the region’s most notable organizations. In 2021, she was involved in the implementation of a new employee stock ownership structure, a natural evolution of Bognet’s culture of entrepreneurship and collaboration. 

She is a member of the Board of Directors for the Old Dominion National Bank (ODNB) and serves as the Audit Chair. She has held leadership positions in many commercial real estate industry organizations and philanthropy including The Greater Washington Board of Trade, Commercial Real Estate Women, Tysons Partnership, Leadership Greater Washington, Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center Lombardi Women, and Women Giving Back.  

Prior to joining Bognet Construction, she worked in the tech industry in both sales and systems engineering for Oracle Corporation and Marriott International.
