Although Jennifer’s initial plan was to be a high school art teacher, life’s turns and twists led to her working in the school system as an Educational Mentor for a young man with disabilities. That experience is what sparked her interest in working with and supporting individuals with disabilities, ultimately paving the way for her to change career paths and begin working as a Case Manager for individuals receiving Medicaid Waiver services. After several years in the case management field, Jennifer changed her path once again and worked a number of years for a residential provider. Jennifer’s path through the residential field is what eventually brought her to Insights Consulting in 2010. Originally a Coordinator of Quality Outcomes, Jennifer worked with Insights for a few of years before taking a brief sabbatical. Coupling her previous HR experience with her work supporting individuals with developmental disabilities, Jennifer returned to Insights in 2014 to assume a new role as an HR Consultant, a role which quickly evolved and transitioned into her current position as Director of Human Resources.
With all the twists and turns of life that caused her career path to be a bit curvier than planned, Jennifer believes it was all meant to be in order for her path to land her where she is today. Happily married to a wonderful husband, whom she’s been with for over 20 years, mother to an amazing son who recently began college at IU, and working for Insights, alongside the best team of people she could have ever imagined, all working to make a difference in the lives of those who need and deserve it most.
