Consultant Bio

For four years out of Northwestern (where she attended the Medill School of Journalism while minoring in political science and French), Jennifer worked at Edelman Public Relations, where she focused on communication strategies to help clients project their best image to the world.

At Harvard, Jennifer was part of the Women’s Student Association where she participated in an end-of-semester project on post-merger integration.

After completing her MBA, Jennifer joined Hewitt Associates, a human resources consulting firm, where she specialized in working with clients to improve attraction, motivation, and retention of employees. She collaborated on a small international team that designed and rolled out a new consulting offer to consultants worldwide.

Outside of her formal work experience, Jennifer was part of a team working for later high school start times in her children’s school district. She also led a Girl Scout troop for eight years, where she really enjoyed working with each girl to help her bring out her best.
