Behind the scenes…
business & Marketing
Jennie grew up with Kids' MusicRound, accompanying her mom (Miss Marcia) to music class since the age of 3. At 16, Jennie became KMR's youngest certified teacher. Her experiences with KMR instilled in her a passion for family dynamics, and she incorporated that into her studies at Smith College where she studied Government with a focus on Family Policy. Jennie plans to become a doula in the near future to support families as they literally grow. Jennie currently handles administrative work for KMR of Palm Beach County, as well as Cherry Hill, NJ while working as an au pair in the Netherlands. She is thankful that KMR has given her own family a way to share their passion for children and music, and she is excited to follow in her mom's footsteps.
