Melissa Rekas
They're my school  •  Senior Private Sector Development Specialist, The World Bank. Previously Private Sector Development Specialist, The World Bank.
Jennifer is highly motivated, has a multi-faceted background that she can draw upon to come up with useful and innovative solutions to chall ... enges. She is also a great communicator and networker. She has launched a number of successful initiatives and is very good at linking people together to achieve goals that they have in common. I met Jennifer when we went to graduate school together, and she and I have also worked in two of the same organizations - a large private firm, and an international development organization. I have seen her excel in all of these environments, using her intellect, technical knowledge, passion and drive, and communication/networking skills.
Brian Shea
We worked together  •  Principal & co-founder, Simon Everett, Ltd.. Previously Director, Government Services, Eurasia Group. Vanderbilt grad.
She's intellectually agile and loves taking on diverse challenges, yet applies herself wholeheartedly into each new endeavor. Her interpers ... onal skills are are sharp as her individual abilities, so she adds value as part of a team or in solo engagements. Her personal experiences are as diverse as her professional ones, so she is able to relate to a wide range of people and situations.
Janina Khayali Rhodes
They're my friends  •  Regional Director - West Africa and Great Lakes and Latin America/Caribbean (LAC) Regions, International Medical Corps.
Jennifer is a consummate networker incredibly intuitive and super bright. She's one of those people who sees the big picture and can operate ... in any diverse environment with ease. She's an asset to any organization and you'll be lucky to join her sphere.
Dr. Angela Cerkevich
We worked together  •  Therapist, Moksha Living and Psychology Associate, Private Practice. Florida State grad.
Jennifer's expertise in the Middle East combined with her ability to build effective partnerships make her essential in the growth and expan ... sion of organizations.
