A graduate of the University of California-Santa Barbara, Kennedy comes to APSU from Vanderbilt University Medical Center, where she had served as a grants administrator and compliance officer since August 2005. Prior to that, she worked for the University of California-Santa Barbara as contracts and grants analyst.

“Jenifer has considerable experience, both at Vanderbilt and at other institutions,” Dr. Sherry Hoppe, APSU president, said. “I'm confident she will continue the good work begun by Ed Davis.” — Dennie B. Burke
