It was during the time when Hackney was notoriously known as “Murder Mile” (following on from 8 fatal shootings within 2001-2002). To date Jennifer works for the public sector alongside her public relations initiative called Healing Relations PR; this initiative provides social media management, media, press relations and a befriending service. Jennifer is qualified as a journalist and also an accredited Public Relations practitioner. To date Jennifer helps produce films and radio productions. One of her publications “Exploring Spirituality in Education and Child Development” received high appraisals in 2014 whilst she was studying pastoral care at Newham College University Centre. Jennifer’s past competitiveness and current love for sport qualified her as a sports chaplain (for the diocese of Ilford, and Dagenham and Redbridge) with the organisation Sports Chaplaincy UK . Her feat as a sports chaplain was accompanied by her short play “Love Success and All”; which is about a tennis player’s dreams and aspirations. Jennifer was also elected in 2018/19 as the NHS NEL BAME Network’s Marketing and Communications Officer, she also sat on their executive committee.
