Principal Consultant, Digital Strategy & Customer Success
Jennifer grew up in northern Michigan but moved to Charlotte escape the cold weather as soon as she could. She enjoys traveling, playing volleyball and spending time with her family.
WHAT CAUSE ARE YOU PASSIONATE ABOUT?
Animal rescue – from wildlife to family pets – they had me at FUR! I’m a huge animal lover and have had several rescue dogs and cats. Having a 10-year-old daughter, causes related to children’s health are also near and dear to my heart. I feel incredibly fortunate to be able to partner with many amazing clients!
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE VACATION SPOT?
The ocean has my soul! Any tropical beach will do, but Costa Rica and Belize are two of my favorites. I’m always up for an adventure and love snorkeling, diving, deep sea fishing, kayaking, paddle boarding and hiking.
WHAT DO YOU THINK IS THE BEST INVENTION OF YOUR LIFETIME?
This is kind of funny, but I think I would have to say GPS. I’ve traveled on business for most of my career and Garmin was a lifesaver when driving to meetings with volunteers, walk team captains and corporate partners in unfamiliar cities.
