« I previously worked with Jennifer, teaching social and vocational skills to individuals on the spectrum. Jennifer was a wonderful leader in helping me learn and foster my own skills in how to effectively run a group. She also was an incredibly thoughtful and empathic facilitator with our participants. She understands how to meet someone where they are, but also challenge them to help them learn and grow. I would highly recommend this person for your organization. »
