There may be a ceiling in some businesses but not at Glen Oaks Escrow according to Jennifer Foster. In the escrow industry for more than a decade, Jennifer saw something unique in the company – a progressive, all-in approach to supporting their employees and growing the organization.

“Glen Oaks Escrow gives me the tools to be successful,” Jennifer says. “They have the right balance of business acumen and friendly management that makes for a great environment.” The Escondido native originally planned to go into law, but a summer job at an escrow firm changed her mind. “I love interacting with clients and focusing on the details of drawing documents and preparing files. Escrow gives me the perfect combination.” Jennifer manages all types of residential escrow, primarily in the coastal region of North San Diego County and is a Notary Public. She also handles all of the escrows for the City of Carlsbad’s affordable units. Although very labor-intensive, the work gives her the opportunity to give back, which she enjoys immensely.

As fall approaches, Jennifer’s sunny personality gets even brighter at the prospect of football season. She and her husband love cheering on their favorite NFL team, the Green Bay Packers followed by who else? The San Diego Chargers!
