Meet Your Career Coaches

Jennifer Meuse

Career Coach

she, her, hers

Jennifer’s passion is helping others (and herself!) reframe change, uncertainty, and unexpected events into positive mindsets and experiences. She welcomes students to meet and discuss their next career steps and forge a path to their own next life adventure.

Jennifer started her career as an English teacher in Houston, Texas. After several years, she made a huge move to Portland, Oregon. After a few months of uncertainty, she attended pastry school. At first, Jennifer was nervous and unsure of that career move, but she discovered a great love of cake decorating that brings so much joy to her life still today.

  • In Jennifer’s free time, she is usually creating something or watching scary movies. She loves painting portraits of horror villains, decorating cakes in fantastical themes (usually including tiny little buttercream toadstools), and embroidering flowers on everything. If she is not at home, she is out looking for a bargain at a thrift store or estate sale. Jennifer’s favorite find to-date is a talking Pee-wee Herman doll!
