Jennifer joined the Stratford Chefs School in Administration & Marketing soon after returning to her hometown of Stratford, after living many years in Toronto where she worked in live performance and film marketing at Canadian Stage, and before that with Entertainment One and Alliance Films.

A passionate cheerleader for arts, culture, and all things Stratford, Jennifer is thrilled to be part of the talented team at Stratford Chefs School, and to support staff, faculty and the next generation of Chefs during their time at SCS. She also loves the fantastic Chefs School dinners. In her spare time, Jennifer volunteers as Marketing & Social Media Manager for the Stratford Symphony Orchestra and spends quality time with her hubby and two Burmese cats.
