Jenifer joined KSU in January 2010, bringing fifteen years experience in food service, hospitality and event management. She began her hospitality career in fine-dining restaurants in the early 1990s, working her way up from server and prep cook to management in both front-of-the-house and back-of-the-house roles. In 1997, Jenifer transitioned to event management when she started her own events company. Jenifer gained international experience while living in Dublin, Ireland, from 2002 to 2004, where she partnered with a Dublin-based catering and events company. During her time there, Jenifer executed high-end social and corporate events in four-and five-star hotels and upscale event venues. Upon her return to the US in 2004, Jenifer began consulting and contract work for independent companies, and joined a leading event management, public relations and marketing firm in 2006. Jenifer has produced national and international events and conferences and performed marketing and PR services for clients such as Intel, JCB, Comcast, Southern Company, Coca-Cola, the WNBA, Atlanta Dream, The National Peanut Board, and the Chick-fil-A Foundation.
Jenifer is an active member of the Georgia Restaurant Association, and serves as a student mentor for the Hospitality Education Foundation of Georgia.
