At 5’11” Jennifer Smith is the shortest in her family! The Champaign native has taught psychology and sociology classes at Parkland in addition to her current role as Student Services advisor in Admissions and Records. She has enjoyed “helping students achieve their goals” and Parkland’s “supportive environment” since joining the college in 2001.
One of Central Illinois Business Magazine’s “40 under 40” community role models, Jennifer is an active promoter of breast cancer awareness. She enjoys being considered a “friendly” person, and is inspired by her young son. A favorite vacation spot? “Anywhere on a beach,” she’d reply. If you find her there, Jennifer will likely be reading the latest Sophia Kinsella book or doing what she does best: encouraging others.
