"Jennifer jumps in with both feet to challenges big and small. She is one of the most effective people I've ever worked with, from project management to partnership development, to grant writing and media relations. She functions equally well at the 30,000 foot level as the ground level, knowing when to focus on the big picture or nuts and bolts of an issue. She knows how to move projects forward, ask the right questions, and synthesize information, all in a very personable and professional way."
