Jennifer's speaking career is a product of her deep concern for student wellbeing.

Jennifer is known for her natural ease and connection with students, relatability, genuine investment in student success, and being "nurturing but tough -- exactly what students need."

"There are some speakers who have an IT factor - a charisma that allows them not only to connect with their audience but also to get the best out of them. Jennifer Gershberg is one of those people. Her energetic and captivating teaching and speaking style sucks people in. When she is speaking, her audience is fully engaged. She does an incredible job getting through to students and teaching them how to be successful. Jennifer helps guide students to be their best selves and to grow into successful adults. I couldn't recommend her more highly."
