Jenni Frere Volk was born and raised in Bellingham, Washington. She also had the pleasure of living in eastern Washington for four years while attending Whitman College in Walla Walla, Washington’s most prestigious collegiate institution.
As a liberal arts college, Whitman provided Jenni with a solid foundation to become a successful, well-rounded attorney and business owner.
Jenni went on to graduate magna cum laude from Seattle University School of Law.
Although the subject of death can be delicate, Jenni became interested in teaching others about estate planning so that they could take comfort in knowing that their loved ones would be taken care of upon their passing. Jenni’s friends and family have always considered her a “planner” – so estate planning seemed to be a natural fit.
She is a member of the Washington State Bar Association and is currently the co-chairman/co-founder of the Washington First Responder Will Clinic.
Jenni currently lives in Seattle with her husband, Ben, and her two young children.
