Jennifer is the Program & Evaluation Officer at Diabetes SA. She supports the Health Services team and is responsible for developing and maintaining an evaluation framework for our education programs.

Jennifer is passionate about capturing and understanding participant feedback to provide meaningful insight into the needs of our community and better inform program improvement and development.

An important part of Jennifer’s role is to analyse the demographics of people living with diabetes in South Australia to understand where the greater need for programs and services lies. She undertakes reviews of health services programs to understand and report the reach, range, access and effectiveness.

In her spare time Jennifer enjoys spending time with her pet spoodle Rosie, gardening and baking for family and friends.
