About Jennifer Van Buren

Despite receiving degrees in criminal justice and psychology from American University, Jennifer’s heart (and palate) led her to the food and wine haven of New Orleans following graduation. There, she immediately immersed herself in the restaurant scene. She nurtured her love of wine by accepting an office job for a boutique importer, which quickly grew into a national sales role. When Hurricane Katrina forced that business to close, Jennifer relocated to Denver. After two brief stints with similar companies (one that fortuitously resulted in her meeting her now-husband), she found her home for the next seven years with New Zealand wine importer, Station Imports, based in Southern Colorado. In early 2017, Jennifer joined Wine Dogs Imports as the National Sales Representative, opening and running many markets all over the country. She has received her WSET L3 certification and aspires to keep learning more about wine & life every day.
