Jennifer has been working with creative expression as a means of community building, self-empowerment and joy for many years! She landed in Atlanta to work as an actor and found herself invigorated by the ensemble creating work of The Academy Theatre. She worked as an actor, director and facilitator with the Human Services program of The Academy Theatre for ten years. Currently she teaches "with-hope" girls through Synchronicity Theatre's "Playmaking For Girls" program.
Jennifer is an ordained "New Church" minister. Her ordination path included an in-depth exploration into creating a church space that allowed each person present to find her own connection to the divine. The inherent wisdom of "where two or more are gathered," has long been a guiding principle in her teaching.
The simple connections InterPlay creates nourish, sustain and inspire her. As well as leading playgroups in the Atlanta metro area, Jennifer leads InterPlay with children and teens in her work as a teaching artist and with women in prison. She is the director of Atlanta InterPlay's performance group, Soulprint Players. Jennifer is passionate about making the transformative power of the arts accessible to all!
