Jennifer’s mid-coast Maine roots go back to the 70’s, when her father and mother bought a house in Part Clyde.  Her warmest recollections of time with family and raising three children, have centered on this beautiful part of the world.  After living a life with her family that involved many different homes, from Lewiston, Maine to Paris, France, Auburn and Gardiner, Maine to the north shore of Chicago, Jennifer always imagined coming back to Maine, settling into a home on the mid-coast.  To her delight, she and her husband David, have tucked into a beautiful farm right along the shores of the Medomac River, about a mile out of the Waldoboro downtown area.


She is thrilled to join Alitha and Jim and all the team at Peninsula Properties. The natural  beauty of this area, the warmth of the community, the history and tradition found in the local architecture is inspiring.
