Jennifer first explored leadership in depth after witnessing the misuse of power and how quickly that use of power can impact the people, teams, and affiliates of an organization. As such, Jennifer decided to pursue knowledge in the area of leadership. Upon earning her Ph.D. in Leadership Studies, Jennifer formally began her university teaching and leadership consulting career. Today, Jennifer studies not only leadership scholarship, but also leadership in practice. Working in a Jesuit institution (Creighton University), she also is keen to discover the nuances and outcomes of Ignatian Leadership in contemporary society.
