GET TO KNOW JENNIFER.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT TGS?
My favorite thing about TGS is the many resources it offers. I’ve never known of a place where I can work on my projects, go to happy hour, network, attend socially and politically relevant events, and hang out all in one. I also love how friendly and welcoming the staff are.
when you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
When I was a child, I wanted to be an elementary school teacher and teach the youth. When I was a teenager, I wanted to pursue law to advocate for people. I think I found a happy medium by becoming an advisor/counselor in higher education institutions.
What’s one hidden skill or talent that you possess that people might not know?
I love birthdays and can remember someone’s birthday instantly, even if they only tell me once.
what motivates you?
Giving to those in need and helping people realize their potential and reaching their goals.
