A native Californian, Jenn spent 10 years as the Principal in her own human resource consulting business before joining CEA in 2017 as an HR Advisor and Trainer. Through word of mouth, Jenn found herself time and again being asked to build the HR infrastructure for small to medium sized businesses throughout California. Often she spent months on the ground helping various businesses establish the foundational support needed for success – the development of an employment handbook, creation of a hiring and onboarding process and implementation of disciplinary programs.

Whether it’s writing policies and procedures, building employee relations, or conducting audits and investigations, Jenn is a pro when it comes to compliance on local, state and federal levels. Vivacious, energetic and knowledgeable, Jenn complements our already strong team of subject matter experts. Jenn’s depth of HR knowledge and business experience and her passion for speaking and training have made her a sought after speaker from employers all over the State.

Jenn began her professional career at Fresno City College, in the Human Resources Department, and completed her education with a Bachelors of Administration in Human Resources and a Masters’ Degree in Organizational Management from Ashford University in San Diego, CA.
