My name is Jennifer and I am a Disney Cast Member! I am pursuing my dream to become an influential leader at The Walt Disney Company. I am very versatile – I am a mother, an engineer, a technical leader, a Disney fanatic, a Society of Women Engineers member, a certified Project Management Professional, and most recently a lifeguard!
From 2005 – 2016, I have been applying my Electrical Engineering degree in individual contributor and leadership positions of systems engineering and logistics engineering functions within the defense industry. I have coordinated multiple sites in standardizing tool usage and became a subject matter expert for systems engineering requirements development and related software. I have led and managed diverse teams to achieve multi-million dollar cost avoidance and mitigated risk for aging system support. I have led workshops and presentations about STEM initiatives, business etiquette, and leadership development. During this time, I would continuously follow Disney news and trends, I would set up thorough Disney vacation plans, and I was eager to talk about all things Disney with my family, friends, and colleagues.
I have realized that my passion is to help create fantastic memories for families, and more specifically, at The Walt Disney Company.
