In 2007, Jennifer had earned her Lighting Certification from the National Council of Qualified Lighting Professionals. In 2008, she became the Authorized Texas instructor for Lighting Analysts’ AGi32 lighting software; certified to teach basic, intermediate, and roadway levels of the software.

She has been a member of the Illuminating Engineering Society since 1995. During that time she served the Austin section leadership as Vice-President, Treasurer, and Secretary, and Education chair. She was IES Conference steering committee chair in 2012 and 2013, and 2014 advisory member. In November 2013, she became proud recipient of the IES Presidential Award.
