Prior to arriving at the Crime Prevention Network, Jennifer utilized her leadership skills in education administration. During her almost ten years in administration she has held positions in both for-profit and non-profit early childhood organizations. Her most notable accomplishment was her involvement in the opening and leadership of the third Educare school in Tulsa. Tulsa Educare is a non-profit early childhood school that works to change the trajectory of poverty for at-risk and low income students. During her tenure at Tulsa Educare, many families indicated that they did not feel safe in their neighborhoods. Jennifer feels that in order to thrive, families and individuals must have five basic needs met: clothing, shelter, food, medical, and safety. She knows that her experience working with families and individuals from all walks of life will propel the Crime Prevention Network’s mission of creating a safer place to live, work, and play.
Jennifer was appointed Executive Director for the Crime Prevention Network in July 2015. “Being born and raised in Tulsa, I have such a passion for this community. With the exciting growth that Tulsa has seen and the opportunities to come, I have no doubt that the wonderful citizens of Tulsa can continue to work together to make our city a safer place.”
