Meet Jen, Justin and their girls!

Jennifer Albinson and Justin Cohan-Shapiro moved to Curtis Park in March 2019 with toddler Whitney, and a year later their family has grown to include baby Harriet.

“We picked Curtis Park because we love the trees and the park, but also the proximity to downtown,” Jen says.

They also love the big front porch of their home on Portola Way and take classes at Sierra 2. As members of SCNA, “we love the opportunity to participate in super-local politics.” During the pandemic, as both Jen and Justin work from home, she says “our favorite ritual is an exercise run around Curtis Park and then donuts at Marie’s, while our toddler watches the trains go by.”

Next time you see them out and about in Curtis Park, say “hello.”
