"Never underestimate the power of a smile, a listening ear or the smallest act of kindness," Jennifer shares.

Jennifer joined the North Oaks Department of Laboratories in 2001 as a Clerical Assistant. In 2005, she transferred to Patient Services as Telemetry and Medicine Units Secretary, and in 2011, she became Heart Health Services Secretary. She was promoted to her current position in 2014.

Jennifer has been recognized as an Employee of the Month twice before in November 2008 and May 2011.

Born in New Orleans, she graduated from Belle Chasse High School and attended Southeastern Louisiana University.

Jennifer and her husband Scott make their home in Ponchatoula with their 14-year-old daughter Mallorie, who attends St. Thomas Aquinas Regional Catholic High School.

Jennifer considers herself a “people” person and sets a personal goal each day to positively impact the life of a patient, visitor or coworker.

"Jennifer puts her heart and soul into her work and has a gift for making you feel as if you are her only priority. Staff members across the health system count on her as a ‘go to’ resource. We are fortunate to have such a model employee advocating for our patients, staff, health system and community,” affirms Christi Marceaux, Vice President of Health Health Services.
