Jennifer Lewis is a mental health worker, community advocate, and leader in the fight against the Atlantic Coast Pipeline. She's been a civically active member of her community in Augusta County and Waynesboro, volunteering for various local groups, serving on boards and commissions, and fighting on the front lines for the values of the 6th District. Jennifer grew up unloading hay and picking rock on her small, family-owned dairy farm. While she was away at college, her family made the heart-wrenching decision to sell their farm.
