Jennifer earned a Bachelor of Science from SUNY Cortland. She has over a decade of experience in the field of fundraising and development and has demonstrated ability for raising critical funds for the causes she represents. Whether Jennifer was working on a national level or at a grassroots, community level, she has always demonstrated the ability to bring people together to rally around an issue.

At the National Breast Cancer Coalition (NBCC), Jennifer spearheaded the Development Department by managing nationwide fundraising events. Her efforts around donor development led to a significant increase in agency supporters and constituents. During her tenure at NBCC she opened their only satellite office in Los Angeles and played a substantial role in expanding its leadership.

As a result of her decision to be closer to her family, in 2007, Jennifer relocated back to her origin roots of the East End of Long Island and was appointed to lead the Retreat’s advancement activities as its Director of Development. In her tenure with the Retreat, Jennifer raised awareness about domestic violence, expanded its group of community donors and supporters, helped secure the agency’s first federal grant and raised millions of dollars to help protect the women and children living on the East End.

Jennifer joined Park Century School in August, 2012, her first foray into Independent School fundraising.
