Jennifer is an Associate Professor and the Chair of the Department of Education at Malone University.  Previous to her appointment at Malone, Jennifer was a clinical professor of special education at Walsh University, and before that a K-12 teacher working with students with mild/moderate disabilities. Her teaching experiences led her to want to pursue a Ph.D. at Kent State University to move full-time to higher education. Jennifer has presented at local, state, and national conferences on special education topics including poverty, project-based learning, universal design for learning, and most recently mentoring early career teachers. Her current research interests are mentoring with early career teachers and the impact of faith-integration on teacher retention. She is also very interested in advocacy for higher education and special education and is serving as co-chair of the OACTE advocacy committee, is immediate past-president of CEC-Ohio, and is serving on the LDPS sub-committee for National CEC. Other areas of interest include her local church and serving on area non-profit boards including the Canton YWCA and One Byte at A Time. In her free time, Jennifer loves to read, travel, and spend time with her family and friends.
