Jennifer has spent the majority of her career in the arts. She moved from theatre stage management to event planning and arts venue management, to presenting and interdisciplinary curatorial oversight.

A civic champion, Jennifer has a deep love for her city and a genuine desire to foster a creative and compassionate community through the arts. Jennifer’s personal mission is to contribute to the quality and enjoyment of life for all, the best way she knows how - through the arts.
