From the GOP website:

A native of Maple Grove, Minnesota, Jennifer graduated from Osseo Senior High School in 1995. She received her Bachelor of Science Degree from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University and her Masters of Business Administration from the Carlson School of Management at the University of Minnesota. Her strong business experience, combined with her entrepreneurial spirit led Jennifer to leave Corporate America behind in early 2014 to open up her own small business in Minnesota – a women’s clothing boutique. After less than two-years, Jennifer’s small business endeavors have expanded to two retail brands: Primrose Park and Coco & Co, both located in the Brainerd Lakes Area.

Jennifer is also highly active in her community. She helped found the National Association of Asian MBA’s Twin Cities Chapter, founded the Asian Employee Network at Ecolab, has volunteered for Big Brothers Big Sisters, the Junior League of Minneapolis and Salvation Army. She is also a member of the Nisswa Chamber of Commerce, Brainerd Lakes Chamber of Commerce, Woodbury Chamber of Commerce and West Broadway Coalition.

In 2016, Jennifer attended her first-ever caucus and from there her political journey began. She was the endorsed Republican candidate and ran for the Minnesota State Senate in District 59: Downtown & North Minneapolis where she achieved the highest voter results of any Republican ever to run in that district. Through her campaign strategy and effort, she increased the vote by 4.5% and lifted every precinct in Downtown Minneapolis over 30% on her race – a first for Republicans in the fourth most liberal district in the state of Minnesota. Jennifer was also elected as a national delegate to the RNC in Cleveland in 2016 and was elected State Party Chairman for Minnesota, on April 29, 2017.
