Jennifer Hodgkins brings years of political and legislative experience to Meridian.
Jennifer’s career began in political fundraising in 2014, where she played a key role in increasing revenue for numerous campaigns. The majority of her clients were in highly competitive, targeted districts where Jennifer helped them achieve their fundraising goals — providing the campaigns with the resources to win.
Jennifer’s career transitioned from politics to policy when she went to work in the California State Capitol. During her time in the State Assembly, Jennifer worked closely with the nationally recognized Millennial Action Project seeking bipartisan collaboration regarding small business issues and government transparency. In the State Senate, Jennifer served as a legislative advisor to the Vice Chair of Public Safety and continued to advocate for a better business environment in California.
At Meridian Pacific, Jennifer continues to work closely with the business community. Her combined experience has played a key role in securing multiple victories for our clients through grassroots advocacy, targeted messaging, and statewide coalition management.
Jennifer is a graduate of California State University, Sacramento where she received a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice. Soon after graduation, she developed a passion for civic engagement and discovered her interest in creating sound public policy.
Jennifer grew up in the Central Valley and resides in Clovis, CA.
