During her time at the University of Houston she acted as principal flute and solo piccolo with the Symphony Orchestra and performed with them at the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C. Jennifer has received instruction from and performed in master classes in the United States and Europe from a number of today's top flutists including Catherine Payne, Keith Underwood, Jim Walker, Christina Jennings, Leone Buyse, Robert Stallman, Carol Wincenc, Timothy Day, Sergio Pallotelli, Sooyun Kim, Ian Clarke, and Aralee Dorough.

She helps offer them tools and the direction needed so that they too may discover how they want to express themselves through music. Her students show improvement very quickly and are active participants in recitals, school band programs, youth orchestras, master classes and competitions. Lessons with Jennifer are tailored to each student’s unique musical goals, as every student has different interests.
