Jenn has lived in Orlando since graduating from the University of Central Florida in 2001 with a bachelor’s degree in business, majoring in Marketing. Since that time, Jenn has worked in the healthcare and pharmaceutical industry in numerous roles, including sales and marketing, specifically in mental health and addiction. She has worked with various members of the Central Florida medical community to help patients get access to appropriate treatment. Her knowledge and understanding of the struggle and stigma associated with mental health and substance abuse disorders has allowed her to become a reliable resource for patients, families, and medical professionals. She has seen the devastating effects that patients and their loved ones have faced and has made it her mission to be an advocate for those who continue to fight the battle. “A day doesn’t go by where I don’t speak to someone who has been affected in some way or another, by addiction or mental health. If I can help just one person get that much closer to getting the treatment they need, I know I’ve made a positive difference in someone’s life, and it encourages me to continue helping.” Jenn has joined Advanced Recovery Systems’ Business Development Team as a Community Outreach Coordinator to continue to advocate for patients and to work alongside those looking for resources for their patients, family members, and anyone seeking treatment services.
As a long-time Orlando resident, Jennifer enjoys everything Orlando has to offer. In her spare time, she enjoys activities and events in the city with friends like catching an Orlando City Soccer match, UCF football games, riding bikes downtown, or at home working on DIY projects.
