About Jennifer

Like many people with Crohn’s disease, Jennifer Watts began experiencing symptoms at a young age, when she was in the 7th grade. And since her Crohn’s diagnosis, Jennifer has had several surgeries, tried a number of different treatments, and had her down moments.

But through it all, Jennifer’s passion for horses and riding helped her stay focused on the future—even helping her win a scholarship to attend college. She’s traveled over 20,000 miles and participated in rodeo competitions competed in 15 states and counting.

Jennifer’s perseverance and determination is proof that you can live a full life with Crohn’s. As Jennifer says, “If you don’t talk about Crohn’s, you’ll never have enough support to do anything about it.”
