President & COO
Jennifer began her career in the staffing and consulting world in 1993 when she began working for a successful national firm looking to open and build a corporate branch in Kansas City from the ground up. After just over 10 years of working with branch start-ups and company turn around ventures in the Information Technology and Business Consulting space, a chance meeting with and Entrepreneurial Technologist led to the founding of Velocity Staff, Inc. Jennifer enjoys the challenge of identifying, attracting and applying talent to opportunity and fostering the growth and development of others. However, what truly drives her is the opportunity to build, foster and grow relationships and making a difference in the community.
In addition to her work as a leader within the Velocity organization, Jennifer is a founder, board member and volunteer of Hoops4Hope, a not-for-profit 501c3 charity that raises funds and awareness for organizations that support cancer patients in need in our community. She also works with the Natalie M Foundation to support scholarships for college bound students interested in pursuing STEM disciplines and works with the Foundation to encourage and educate young women to celebrate their strengths and capabilities.
Jennifer is a graduate of Kansas State University and enjoys spending time with her husband and three step-children. When she is taking a break from the real world, she is exercising her inner athlete as a terrible golfer, a mediocre skier and an avid beach-goer.
