Jennifer is a user experience leader with 25+ years’ experience. She’s currently leading a user research practice where she helps teams create research strategies and execute them in a scaled-agile framework. She facilitates participatory design and research-related activities with a wide range of stakeholders to inform design principles and concepts.

Jennifer also a named co-inventor of a company-owned portfolio of patents and patents-pending for the design of an intelligent knowledge-based system for collaborative work.
