Working Hard for our District.
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 where she earned 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 School District for the past 17 years where her two sons attended school since Kindergarten. Finn graduated in 2019 and is a junior at Gettysburg College and Connor graduated in 2021 and is a freshman 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 work for a cause she felt passionate about—assisting those with food insecurity. She especially wanted to assist those in her local community, so she began volunteering at the Oxford Neighborhood Services Center food pantry, where she still volunteers each week packing groceries for clients. At the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic when donations to the food pantry plummeted, Jenifer raised $700 and was able to help purchase and deliver needed items to the Neighborhood Services food pantry. In addition to volunteering in the food pantry, Jenifer has written the blog From a Simmer to a Boil, which focuses on the topic of food insecurity. Recently, Jenifer and her family decided to open their home to foster cats for two local rescue groups.
