Office Services Coordinator


Room:WQ 304


Jennifer started her journey at Ball State as a first-grader at Burris Laboratory School, later graduating from the university. After spending several years at Indianapolis-Marion County Public Library, she returned “home” to Ball State in 2005. She’s held positions at Bracken Library and in the School of Nursing before joining Marketing and Communications in 2016.

Jennifer manages the production processes for all external print publications and is the primary contact with printers. She keeps communications managers, designers, and clients in the loop about progress on projects so deadlines can be met. She also helps with scheduling university photographers and videographers and coordinating on- and off-campus client photo requests.

Outside of work, Jennifer enjoys writing short fiction and poetry and attending concerts with her husband, Nate. She was recently published in a poetry anthology, and her work appears in several online publications. Jennifer is an editorial assistant for the monthly literary publication “Indiana Voice Journal” and a member of several writing and poetry groups. She also has two daughters (future Cardinals) that keep her quite busy.
