Jennifer has worked in the field of education for many years. She spent much of her early career at the middle school level teaching students identified with autism spectrum disorders. After taking a brief hiatus from teaching to raise two children, Jennifer began working at Messiah. Jennifer has always had a love of learning and helping others gain new knowledge. This passion is what led her to pursue a career in education. Jennifer has supervised all levels of pre-service teachers here at Messiah. In addition to supervising, Jennifer teaches Intro to Special Education.

Jennifer enjoys volunteering, coaching her children's sports teams, renovating her mid-century home, and traveling. Her family also shares a passion for playing mini golf. They have traveled lengthy distances to nearly every mini golf course around!
