Jennifer EffersonVice President of COO Services
Jennifer has over 18 years of management and HR experience. In the last several years of her career, she played a key role in facilitating the successful sale of the firm she had been the Director of Operations and HR at here in Baton Rouge. She then moved on to a purely HR role with the acquiring company in which she supported their many other acquisitions as well as provided HR support to an employee base of hundreds scattered about the country. After some great years there, Jennifer ultimately missed playing a part in making the lives of small business owners easier and is thrilled to have found her new professional home here at NLS in which she can do just that.
