Jennifer has over 18 years experience in market strategy, product marketing, marketing communications, and business development -- in both venture-backed start-ups and public companies. In her consulting practice over the last eight years, Jennifer has served in interim marketing executive positions for key clients such as: Agile Software (now Oracle), the Apollo Group (University of Phoenix), Instill (now ItradeNetwork), Genius.com, Global Healthcare Exchange, Neoforma, Commerce One, Solidcore (now McAfee), Voltage Security and YouSendIt. 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.
Prior to her consulting role, Jennifer has held various management positions at Sybase, Versata and other emerging technology organizations. She is an accomplished industry speaker and has been published in leading trade publications. She holds a B.A. from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and a concentration in Asian economics and politics from Yonsei University in Seoul, Korea.
P90X-er, novice gardener, and board member for the Burlingame Community for Education Foundation, Jennifer really devotes the majority of her time trying to raise three happy, well-adjusted little citizens and to manage her husband's unrelenting home "improvement" efforts. 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.
