Jennifer Teising

Wabash Township Trustee

Jennifer Teising

Thank you for taking the time to get to know me! I look forward to serving the community as your Wabash Township Trustee.

I am a lifelong Hoosier and have lived in Lafayette-West Lafayette area since 2011. My daughter Maggie graduated from West Lafayette Jr./Sr. High School in 2016. I am the owner of Sitewise Digital, a small digital marketing firm located downtown Lafayette catering to small business. Along with my previous experience in finance, management and social work I have the skill set needed to be an effective Trustee. I have been interested in politics since middle school and believe that the United States Government should be of, by and for the people. 

I look to bring community outreach and accountability to the Trustees office. I will ensure the highest level of transparency by improving the Wabash Townships website and social media presence, ensuring that our Township tax dollars are being used wisely. I have the relevant experience to ensure our Township can support and protect our community members.​

Thank you!
