Jennifer wandered into the College of Education sometime in 2013. As a big thank you to whomever left the doors unlocked, she now enthusiastically serves as your Grant Specialist on the Office of Research team.
Prior to landing at the COE, she supported education in various work: Assisting research at ECU College of Nursing, Teaching humanities courses at NC Community Colleges; & Securing federal education funds for Norfolk Public Schools. Her commitment to education continues outside of work where she teaches swimming and supports community involvement with open information access.
Jennifer’s graduate research interests include the socio-economics surrounding American dialects, ethnic American literature, cats, and pirates. She welcomes all forms of research and does not discriminate based on what sounds more awesome to investigate.
