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.

P&Q Consultant Reviews

  • Highly Recommend Stratus for MBA Admissions
    9 hours ago
    Stratus Consulting made the MBA Admissions process, which can be incredibly daunting, much more manageable through their day to day assistance with everything from creating a personal strategy, to determining appropriate individuals for recommendations, to reviewing multiple essay drafts. I would highly recommend their services.

  • Pragmatic & Easy-Going
    4 weeks ago
    It was a pleasure to work with Jennifer. I started working with her close to the deadline for applications, and she was very helpful in identifying the most high-priority items and how to tackle them. She understood my professional goals very quickly and made suggestions of schools and essay topics that would align nicely. She also let me maintain my voice and personality throughout the process- something I found that other counselors did not respect as much. She was practical about what I could accomplish and demonstrated true compassion throughout the process.

Instead of making me rewrite my thoughts in her templates or follow her usual process, Jennifer got to know me through the materials that I had already put together myself. Her adaptiveness saved me time ...

  • Highly recommend Jennifer & Stratus Admissions!
    1 year ago
    I began working with Jennifer in June 2017. At the time (similar to many prospective applicants!), I was juggling full-time employment and GMAT studying. Facing the applications themselves seemed daunting. Working through Stratus’s introspection activities with Jennifer gave me a starting point and was an incredibly helpful way to frame my ‘story’ and clarify my MBA and post-MBA aspirations. Jennifer worked with me to set a realistic timeline given the large number of schools I was planning to apply to and, while she was always flexible when work or life got in the way, was great about keeping me on track throughout the process. She was extremely responsive and knowledgeable about the programs I was applying to – if I ever had a question about ...
