Jennifer has spent close to two decades at camp, as both a camper and in various staff positions. Most recently, Jennifer launched and served as the director of a local day camp in New Jersey. Prior to that, Jennifer was a recruiter for 17 years, helping some of the most prestigious companies in NYC with their staffing needs. Jennifer currently serves on the board of USR Basketball and formerly served as the Co-President of the Jewish Community Organization (JCO) of Northern Bergen County, a local not-for-profit based in the Saddle River Valley. She has also served as the Director of Events for City at Peace (a national children’s charity); and actively supports the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

I’m the Director of Fun and love bringing smiles to the faces of the hundreds of children at camp.

Jennifer has a master’s degree in advertising and marketing from Boston University’s College of Communication and a bachelor’s degree from Binghamton University. She currently resides in Northern New Jersey with her husband and two daughters, ages 14 & 11. Believing that every child should experience camp, Jennifer is thrilled to join the Kaplen JCC on the Palisades and looks forward to spending her time making memories with all the children of the JCC!
