Using her extensive blogging experience Jennifer is able to help clients understand how to easily and effectively maintain a blog. Jennifer started her blogging career when she founded NJ Divorce Mom blog where she shared her musings as a single mom. Due to her authentic writing, she was asked to write for the Huffington Post. She has migrated her writing to My Steps In Time as it more closely aligns with her life at this time – you can check it out to find out why.
Jennifer’s academic background prepared her well for social media marketing with extensive training in Psychology and Analytics. Jennifer holds a Ph.D. in Educational Psychology and an Ed.M. in Educational Statistics and Measurement from Rutgers University. Near and dear to her heart are the four years she spent on the Rose Hill campus of Fordham University earning a Bachelor of Arts in Economics with a personal concentration in the fun of New York City.
Jennifer has spent years teaching statistics and psychology classes at Rutgers and Rider Universities at both the graduate and undergraduate level. This work helped her hone her skills of explaining complicated concepts breaking down difficult information into digestible pieces for understanding.
Jennifer grew up in East Brunswick, New Jersey and is a proud graduate of that strong public school system. She enjoyed a very successful fundraising career at the Rutgers University Foundation and then eight years at home as a full-time stay-at-home-mom. She attended playgroups and was part of the PTO leadership, a member of the Junior League of Greater Princeton, started three girl scout troops, and served as the President of the Lawrence Township Education Foundation.
In her non-screen time you can find her hanging out with her circle of trust, exercising, learning to play the guitar, working on her golf game, snuggled under a blanket with a great book, or binge-watching the latest craze.
