Jennifer Maggio is an author, speaker, business consultant, CEO of a national nonprofit, wife, and mom. Her personal journey through homelessness, abuse, and single parenting has been used to inspire millions. At 19, Maggio was a single mother of two children, living in government housing on food stamps and welfare, who huddled on a bathroom floor certain she could not go on. She had few friends, little money, and no hope. She shares with great openness her pain, mistakes, and journey to find new hope in Christ.
She ultimately became an 11-time Circle of Excellence winner in Corporate America, securing over $55 million in accounts, before leaving that corporate success behind to launch a global initiative to see no single mom walk alone. Today, she is the CEO and Founder of The Life of a Single Mom, a nonprofit that has now served over 1 million single mothers. While a vocal advocate for abstinence and sustaining today’s marriages, Maggio remembers well the obstacles of parenting alone and wants to see single mothers thrive in their single season.
Her passion for Christ is contagious. She believes our only hope is found in Him. Our freedom, joy, healing, peace, restoration, and transformation is found in Christ alone.
Jennifer has been featured in hundreds of media venues in print, television, and radio including The New York Times, Focus on the Family, Daystar Television, The 700 Club, Moody Radio, Family Life Radio, Power Women, and many others. She has been named one of the Top 10 Most Influential Leaders in America, an Influential Woman in Business, a Blue Cross Angel Award Winner, a Rising Star Award Winner, Women’s Legislative Hero of Excellence, and many others.
