Professional Quotes

“There are few times that you work with colleagues who can be described as “complete” human beings—people who know their field and yet proceed through their careers with a commitment to simple truth and integrity without arrogance or masked self interest.  Jennifer has been such a colleague for me.  She is bright, energetic and sincere.  She possesses compassion and the ability to take her attention off herself and put it on her project and on other people.  She is both genuine and generous and she will always get the task done.  It has been my pleasure to work with her.” 

Julianne De Sal, Ph.D.

Director of Arts; Chair of Theater and Dance

Viewpoint School

“Jen’s ability to reach students stems from her clear and honest communication with them.  Jen cares, but she has standards and expectations that are clear and demonstrably fair.  Students respond to this because, above all, they both want structure but also value honesty.”

Greg Armbrister
