A current attendee of John Jay College of Criminal Justice, Jennifer has career goals of achieving her bachelor’s in social work and eventually a Master’s, a field that Jennifer is passionate about. Jennifer wants to help those that are vulnerable and assist them in overcoming their challenges. Jennifer wishes to enhance individual’s well-being and help them meet both their basic and complex needs, focusing on those who need the help the most, such as the homeless, drug-dependent, and children/young adults in the foster care system. While interning at Little Flower Children and Family Services of New York, she worked closely with social workers and caseworkers whose job was to advocate for foster children and find the resources necessary to achieve family unification. At 40 years old, after 17 years of working in banking, Jennifer decided it was time to return to school and pursue the degree needed to working the field she is most passionate about.

“I am eager to start working with other people that are going through some of the things my family and I have been and are still going through. I can relate and I am very empathetic. Nothing would give me more joy than to know I have made a difference and an impact in someone else’s life.”
