As Vice President of Clinical Operations, Jennifer is responsible for executing FARE’s research operations and advancing the science and technology of food allergy. Prior to joining FARE, she spent nearly two decades in academic medicine, creating and enhancing pathways for faculty to successfully engage in investigator-initiated clinical research. She brings expertise in the management of research consortia and the implementation of multisite clinical trials. Jennifer has a bachelor’s degree in medical microbiology and immunology and a master’s degree in biotechnology, both from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Jennifer was destined to work at FARE--she grew up with food allergies and continues to experience oral allergy syndrome as an adult, married a pediatric allergist, and has a son with severe food allergy. She and her husband even drive cars with personalized license plates representing their two “favorite” major allergenic proteins!
