Meet Jennifer

JenniferMy experience at OC so far has been really positive. I really appreciate all the support put in place for students and the events the students’ union puts on.

What I love most about my campus is the smaller class sizes, my classmates and professors feel like a second family. The vibe on campus is super friendly, warm, and welcoming.

My passion to work with children definitely came from my mother. My mother was a teacher for her whole life and children were her biggest passion. She inspired my work beginning as a Certified Education Assistant. From there my passion grew even deeper and I knew I had to continue my education to support young children’s development.
