Jennifer joined Youth Connections in 2015 as the Program Assistant for our Children’s Visitation Center and Jumpstart mentoring groups. She holds a BA in psychology and MS in Mental Health Counseling from the University at Albany in NY. She currently attends the University of Indianapolis.
Jennifer was born and raised in NY and recently moved to Indiana. Prior to her move, Jennifer worked with at-risk youth at both the Colonie Youth Court & Hope House Inc. As the youth court assistant, she worked side by side with young, first-time offenders while they completed their community service. Simultaneously, she worked as the mental health counselor at a residential facility for drug-addicted teenagers.
Jennifer was very involved in her hometown community and is looking to do the same here in Indiana.
