She moved to Austin from her hometown of Corpus Christi in 2017 to accept an internship with the Austin Film Society. Shortly after beginning her role there, Jennifer found CTD, volunteering part-time with Cinema Touching Disability and incorporating her knowledge of the industry.

In 2019, Jennifer joined the CTD team as a Development Specialist, the first such position on our staff. In her development role, she does research, writes grants, promotes CTD through events, and more. She also continues to assist with Cinema Touching Disability. As a people-person, Jennifer says the best part about her job is getting to know others, learning their stories, and helping people however she can. 

She greatly enjoys working to promote diversity and inclusion through the cinematic arts. Jennifer is also an independent film producer and serves as a screener for Transform Film Festival and the Austin Film Festival. As a Texas native, she finds it extremely important to continue the film efforts of the state through festival support and local Austin film initiatives.
