MEET JENIFER WARREN
Active member of our Community.
Jenifer Warren grew up in a rural community very much like Oxford. Her parents owned a country store where she worked through high school. After high school, Jenifer attended the University of DE, earning a Bachelor of Arts in English and San Jose State University where she received a Masters of Library and Information Science. She went on to work in both public and school libraries. Once Jenifer and her husband, Kevin, started a family they wanted to raise their children in a small town setting similar to the one in which they were raised. Jenifer and her family have lived in the Oxford Area School District for almost 20 years where her two sons attended school since Kindergarten. The education they received at OASD has helped them thrive in college. Finn is a recent graduate of Gettysburg College majoring in Environmental Science and Connor is a junior majoring in Chemical Engineering at Lafayette College.
After taking time off to be home with her young children, Jenifer returned to work as the office manager at Warren Energy, her husband’s engineering company. In 2015 Jenifer left Warren Energy to give back to the community by working on causes that impacted the greater Oxford area and about which she felt passionate. Jenifer volunteered for 6 years in the food pantry at Oxford Neighborhood Services Center packing groceries for clients. As a former public librarian, Jenifer understood the vital role public libraries play in a community. As a member of the Board of Trustees for the Oxford Public Library she works to be a strong advocate for the library. Having grown up in a small town much like Oxford, where her family had lived for several generations, Jenifer developed a love of local history. This love and curiosity led Jenifer to join the Board of the Oxford Area Historical Association, where she volunteers weekly in their archives and serves as the Board Vice President. Due to her commitment to the students of OASD, Jenifer volunteers as a tutor and mentor with Oxford Educational Foundation. Lastly, Jenifer and her family have opened their home to foster kittens for two local rescue groups, helping to find homes for almost 20 kittens over the past 2 years.
