Since 1994, Jennifer has worked in a variety of capacities in the Weldon Cooper Center’s Richmond Office, including the Virginia Institute of Government (VIOG). 

A native of southwest Michigan, Jennifer is a proud alumna of the University of Michigan, where she received her BA in Communication with a minor in organizational development. Before joining VIOG, she worked at several organizational development groups, including VCU student leadership. 

At the Cooper Center, Jennifer most enjoys providing assistance to local government employees who, in turn, serve the citizens of the Commonwealth. She also enjoys working with the staff at the Cooper Center's Richmond office; they are like a family to her. 

Outside of work, Jennifer enjoys ice hockey, golf, fountain pens, and stationery.
