Jennifer Copeland

Jennifer is a native Texan and has called Collin County home for the past 6 years. She is a proud wife and mom to Lilah (2018) and Luca (2020). They live in northeast McKinney and love the small town vibe while still being within 10 miles of Target and Trader Joe’s. She attended Collin College, obtaining a degree in liberal arts, and later graduated from Texas A&M with a bachelor’s in dental hygiene. When she’s not brightening smiles, she enjoys writing, running, curling up with a good cup of coffee or glass of wine and her guilty pleasure — jamming 2000s pop punk. On the weekends you can catch her with her family, exploring downtown McKinney, trying new restaurants around town, and being outdoors as much as possible! Their favorite place to be is a cabin in the woods. She has a passion for helping and relating to other moms through humor and loves to share her favorite local adventure spots.
