While at San Jose State, Jennifer acted as principal chair flute in the school's top ranking Wind Ensemble and Symphony Orchestra, and her senior recital was acclaimed by SJSU faculty as having been one of the "best student recitals ever held at the school." 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.
