Founder, Board Member
Jennifer started her passion servicing Moms with the formation of her 1st organization, National Association for Balanced Moms (NAFBM), an organization dedicated to providing resources, motivation, inspiration and mom-centered events to moms everywhere, allowing them to Recharge their energy bucket, Renew their souls, Rejuvenate their health and Relax their minds.
During this time, she found many of her members were Mom Entrepreneurs world-wide looking to network and collaborate, learn business and marketing strategies and connect with other Moms who are driven to make business life and family life work the best they can.
As a result, Jennifer restructured the organization and formed The Mom Entrepreneur Alliance International (MEAI), a Purposeful Collaboration of Inspiration and Resources for Mom Entrepreneurs to THRIVE in their Businesses While Raising a Family.
In the future, alongside growing her other business, Sweet Success Business Services, a virtual assistance company, Jennifer intends to expand MEAI by recruiting City Mom Ambassadors who provide local resources and host events in cities nationwide and internationally.
Jennifer is married to her husband for more than 17 years and has 2 amazing kids, a teenage daughter and an almost middle school son, who keep her extra busy and fulfilled each day. Her family also includes 2 funny dogs, a 13 year old Border Collie and a 5 year old Great Dane.
Director of Events and Member Connections, Board Member
I have been working with Jennifer Griner and the organization since 2011 when it was known as the National Association for Balanced Moms. However, Jennifer and I met in 2010 at her very first mom entrepreneurial networking venture and we were able to stay connected.
At the amazingly fun launch event called, A Moms Night Out Extravagance, I was asked to be the photographer. After the event, I saw so many moms enjoy their escape for the night and I was hooked! I felt my calling to make MEAI a reality for moms across the nation.
What I love about being part of MEAI are the lasting connections I make with so many amazing women. They inspire me and I learn many things from them which helps me grow as an entrepreneur and a mom.
I am married to my best friend and we have 3 beautiful children. Our oldest daughter, Ava is 10 years old and she is our superstar. She is a competitive swimmer and amazes us in all that she does. She is a 2-year champion at her Junior Olympics. Our youngest two – Mia is 2 and Jace is 1. They are both our firecrackers at only 1 year and 3 weeks apart. These two sure keep us on our toes!

I am an LCSW/mental health therapist with a focus on mothers and their families. I have a private practice called Transitions in Motherhood. We offer therapy for individuals, couples, children, and families.
We also offer infant massage classes for parents and their baby. I feel that through supporting the well-being of mothers, the whole family benefits. It is an honor to support the MEAI mission, as well as, the mental health of moms and their families.

City Mom Ambassador - Whittier, CA
Being a City Mom Ambassador combines many of the things I love into one… connecting people, planning events, supporting other women in their lives and businesses, sharing the gifts and talents of so many ladies and giving back to our community thru non-profits. MEAI does all of this and I’m so glad to be a part of this! Love, love, love!
