Her unique focus is leading strategic projects for companies who are in transition — whether that involves implementing new marketing processes, launching a new product, transitioning from a service to a product company, or entering new markets. Jennifer uniquely focuses on establishing solid marketing positioning and messaging to support outbound marketing campaigns and field enablement. Jennifer provides executive teams with the leadership and extra muscle needed to deliver on their key initiatives.

Success on most of these non-work ambitions can prove to be rather spotty like the interminable remodel she is currently enduring, but she did get two zucchinis, a bed of strawberries and some cherry tomatoes to produce before the Burlingame vermin could make off with them. Oh? and the kids seem to be doing just fine.
