Jennifer is a proud graduate of the University of Southern California (USC) where she earned a Master of Teaching degree.

Jennifer is also a member of the Council of Parent Attorneys and Advocates (COPAA). In addition to being an Academic Coach, she serves as a Special Education Advocate representing students that need support with IEP and 504 plans.

As the parent of a student-athlete, Jennifer understands the unique nuisances of students trying to manage both school and sports. 


Spending the last seven years helping student-athletes discover their learning styles and academic gifts, inspired Jennifer to leave a 15-year career in entertainment corporate marketing. As a result, Academic Baller was created.
