Jennifer B. Healey

While attending Virginia Tech, Jennifer interned with the police department, which took her into law enforcement. She began her career as a patrol officer in Lynchburg. She was one of three women in her Academy’s graduating class and one of five women who worked for the department. Jennifer worked in a patrol car, conducted investigations, interviewed suspects, witnesses and victims, and regularly appeared in court to testify. She devoted herself first and foremost to the community she served. After working as an officer, Jennifer continued her service as victim services coordinator for survivors of sexual assault. She advocated for individuals who had been subject to sexual assault. She partnered with law enforcement to ensure that wrongdoers were brought to justice. She worked a crisis hotline, conducted training, and was a companion and advocate in emergency rooms and courtrooms for those who survived assault. Jennifer regularly engaged in community outreach – creating a curriculum on sexual assault, relationship violence and sexual harassment and presenting the programs to students.
 
After returning to Richmond, Jennifer handled all logistics, including domestic and global travel, for a sports management group. During this exciting but hectic time, Jennifer travelled with teams to Europe, Canada and the Caribbean and was energized by watching the FIFA Women’s World Cup live in Canada in 2015 and in France in 2019.
 
Jennifer returned to her roots in law, advocacy and justice and joined the firm as a paralegal in 2019. Every day for the benefit of the firm’s clients, she now puts to work the skills and knowledge that she built going back to her days in law enforcement. She is currently working on completing her paralegal studies degree at J. Sergeant Reynolds Community College.
