Jennifer Thompson is the marketing manager for the Society for College and University Planning (SCUP). She helps to unite the higher education community by sharing the products and services SCUP provides through various communication channels, encouraging connected conversations, learning, and engagement.
Thompson started at SCUP while going to school at Eastern Michigan University. Then in 1999, she moved with her husband to Dallas for three years, where she was an account rep for a military exchange broker. She helped supply products to the exchanges on bases around the world–anything from peanut butter to tires. It was a great experience and she loved the warm weather, but family was calling them home to Michigan. She found herself back at SCUP.
When she’s not working, she spends time outside with her husband, young son, goofy dog, and 20 chickens. The family is always busy building things, jumping on the trampoline, kayaking, four-wheeling, and enjoying life! Thompson also enjoys running, and recently helped coach a Girls on the Run team.
