The non-profit is in its 13th year of operation and has expanded to serve over 150 families in the area. Jenny earned a Bachelor of Business Administration in Marketing from Grand Valley State University in 1996. Jenny brings a strong parent voice to the Early On Michigan work due to her personal experience with the program and strong beliefs in the importance of early intervention.
