Jennifer was born and raised in New Jersey. She has a Bachelor of Arts from Montclair State University. Prior to attending Montclair, she attended the prestigious American Academy of Dramatic Arts in NYC and received an AA in Acting.
While attending college, Jennifer worked as the Office Administrator for two of the top concrete cutting companies in the NY, NJ & CT area. In this very demanding work environment, she managed financial transactions, submitted union reports, and completed requests for proposals (RFPs) for jobs such as the George Washington Bridge, NYC Subway, Broadway Theaters, and Trump Plaza.
Jennifer moved to Indiana in 1999 to work for a local law firm. She worked there for 7 years before taking a role as Financial Secretary at the Lutheran Church of Our Redeemer. Jennifer now serves as DCM’s Director of HR. She earned a Financial Planner Qualified Professional designation in 2014. In 2022, Jennifer earned her 16pf® Certification and Professional Training Program (PTP) Certification in Mind-Body Medicine. She is also an Agile Coaching Skills – Certified Facilitator (ACS-CF®), a designation she earned in 2023.
The 16pf® is a standardized personality factor questionnaire developed in 1949. The 16pf® certification qualifies Jennifer to administer and interpret the questionnaire, and use interpretive reports for talent selection, development, and coaching.
The PTP certification in Mind-Body Medicine covers science-backed teaching of a variety of practical techniques for self-care. Mind-body medicine and its techniques affect physical, mental, and emotional functioning and wellbeing.
Jennifer loves the arts and culture. She has been involved in singing and acting since the age of 8 when she was hired into the 2nd National Touring Company of the Broadway show “Annie.”
