Jennifer Schroeder, Office of Student Financial Aid

Jennifer has been a wonderful mentor to me over the past few years- both personally and professionally. When I go to her for advice, I know that she will listen to my concerns and provide feedback or advice on how to handle difficult situations. I consider her a mentor to me because she empowers me as a female staff member, she empathizes with some of the struggles I’ve had, and she provides constructive feedback for improvement or handling a situation. Personally, she understands the difficulty of being a mom, wife and full-time employee and as a new mom, I’m still trying to balance all of that. I appreciate our conversations and pep talks to get back in a good mindset to do my best as an employee and as a mom. I truly think that Jennifer is a great leader and mentor and deserves to be recognized for the wonderful colleague she is.
