Jennifer has been with Young Scholars since May 2013.
She studied Elementary Education at Western Illinois University for 2 years before realizing she wanted to work in the Early Childhood field.
Jennifer began working with children in 2000 when she worked at a summer day camp as a swim instructor. Jennifer then worked at the Central Lake YMCA in Vernon Hills for about 12 years in the infant room.
She loves working with the babies, but enjoys the toddlers as well. She is always researching ways to keep the babies busy by art projects, activities and hitting developmental milestones. Jennifer has two boys of her own who she enjoys doing fun things with on the weekends.
