Jennifer has found her home in helping others navigate change in their own lives as a Career Coach with the School of Cultural and Social Transformation and the Department of Film and Media Arts. Jennifer’s passion is helping others (and herself!) reframe change, uncertainty, and unexpected events into positive mindsets and experiences. She welcomes students to meet and discuss their next career steps and forge a path to their own next life adventure.
Jennifer started her career as an English teacher in Houston, Texas. After several years, she made a huge move to Portland, Oregon. After a few months of uncertainty, she attended pastry school. At first, Jennifer was nervous and unsure of that career move, but I discovered a great love of cake decorating that brings so much joy to my life still today.
In Jennifer’s free time, she is usually creating something or watching scary movies. She loves painting portraits of horror villains, decorating cakes in fantastical themes (usually including tiny little buttercream toadstools), and embroidering flowers on everything. If she is not at home, she is out looking for a bargain at a thrift store or estate sale. Jennifer's favorite find to-date is a talking Pee-wee Herman doll!
