Jennifer joined Monmouth University in July 2016 after working five years as an academic advisor at a community college. She was raised in Gloucester Township, NJ which is a short distance from her alma mater, Rowan University. Jennifer was a transfer student herself so she can relate to the adjustment process that many students encounter in their first few semesters. Jennifer is also Monmouth’s chapter advisor for Tau Sigma, the National Honor Society for transfer students. In her spare time, she enjoys yoga, reading, and being a fun aunt to her niece and nephew.
