During her earlier years in the military, Jennifer served as a legal specialist in the 8830th MP Brigade out of Fort Meade, Maryland. During that same time period, as a civilian, Jennifer pursued vocational training as an orthodontic assistant and maintained employment in that field for more than fifteen years.
In 1999, Jennifer moved to Delaware, several years later she earned a Bachelor’s of Science in Business Management from Wilmington University, becoming the first in her family to obtain a college degree. Jennifer used her degree to help dentists and dental specialists market their practices; however, she always had her heart set on law.

While in law school, Jennifer participated in the Delaware Civil Law clinic where she represented victims of domestic violence in her student capacity. Additionally, Jennifer had the privilege of serving as a summer intern to Justice Jack Jacobs in The Supreme Court of the State of Delaware, where she was exposed to a plethora of practice areas including: corporate, criminal, personal injury, intellectual property, and family law.
Jennifer went on to serve as a Judicial Law Clerk to the Honorable Mark D. Buckworth, in The Family Court of Delaware, where she developed strong analytical writing skills and gained invaluable experience with family law issues including: child custody, child neglect and abuse, protection from abuse, divorce, and equitable distribution.
Jennifer is admitted to practice in Pennsylvania. Having relocated to Chester County, Jennifer proudly joined Ciccarelli Law Offices, bringing with her an immense passion for family law, as well as a vital judicial perspective that she gained from her clerkship.
