Executive Director - Jennifer Bremer

 

Jennifer Bremer was born and raised in Waller, Texas. She attended Texas A&M University where she graduated cum laude with Bachelor of Science degrees in Agribusiness and Agricultural Economics and was awarded numerous awards for leadership and academic excellence.

During her time at Texas A&M, she worked in the Texas Capitol during the 82nd Legislative Session as a legislative aide for Chairman Warren Chisum, former chair of the House Committee on Appropriations and former vice-chairman of the House Committee on Environmental Regulation. That decision led her to return to Austin after graduation to pursue a career in policy development and advocacy.

Jennifer comes to TLMA from Sander Resources, L.L.C. where she managed a wide variety of client projects ranging from corporate communications and stakeholder outreach initiatives to regulatory compliance and requirements for pipeline operators.

Prior to joining Sander Resources in 2013, Bremer worked in the Texas House of Representatives serving as legislative director for Representative Craig Goldman. Bremer was responsible for drafting and analyzing legislation and preparing the Representative for floor debate. As a lead staff member for the Texas House Republican Caucus Policy Committee. Bremer prepared daily floor reports, which included each bill and resolution to be discussed on the house floor. She also collaborated with lobbyists, state agencies and interest groups in order to perfect legislation.

While attending college, Bremer worked for the Texas A&M AgriLife Contracts and Grants department, where she coordinated distribution of federal, state and private partnership proposals, contracts, nondisclosure agreements and intellectual property agreements. She successfully completed an internal self-study for the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service Department of Agricultural Economics, Teaching, Research and Extension.

Growing up in a family active in farming and ranching taught her a love and appreciation of the land, which drew her to TLMA’s mission. She was also active in the National FFA Organization holding numerous officer positions, competing in competitions and raising and showing livestock.

She currently lives outside of Austin with her chocolate labs, Banks and Frank. In her spare time, she enjoys trying a new recipe, rescuing a dog or two and giving back to organizations like Rodeo Austin.
