Jennifer grew up on a working cattle ranch near the Canadian border of Montana. Her parents believed in the importance of seeing the world and supported her first solo international trip at the age of 16. She spent a summer working and exploring the historic beauty of the United Kingdom. After her first year of college she returned to global travel again spending time in Scandinavia, Western & Eastern Europe, and the Greek isles. She met her husband, Jonathan Scott, at the University of Montana from which she graduated on the Dean’s List with a degree in communications. The couple moved to Jackson Hole, Wyoming to raise their three children with Jon serving as the CEO of family owned First Interstate Bank for 20 years as well as being a member of the Young President’s Organization.
