ROTARIAN OF THE WEEK  – Jennifer Gordon, Club Member since 2018

Jennifer is a native Angeleno.  She has lived in Santa Monica for 23 years and was born and raised in Pasadena. For college, Jennifer went back east to Dickinson College in Carlisle, PA.  After school she lived and worked in Washington, DC for four years before heading back to California.  Once back in Los Angeles, she earned her MBA at USC.

Jennifer has worked in commercial real estate finance for most of her career.  Currently, she originates apartment loans for Banner Bank and her office is in Santa Monica.

On the personal side, Jennifer likes to spend time with her family who still live in Pasadena.  She also enjoys travel, food, and being active, particularly in yoga and spinning.  She was fortunate to combine all of those interests in a yoga retreat to Bali in March 2020 – right when the world was shutting down because of Covid!

In addition to Rotary, Jennifer is also on the Board of the Santa Monica Boys and Girls Club.
