Expertise That Advances The Arts 

Strengthen your capacity to provide meaningful impact in and through the arts.

Your Mission: My Honor

Thriving in the arts requires creative vision, best practice expertise, roll-up-your sleeves resourcefulness, and relentless enthusiasm.  I founded Honors in Art out of a dogged pursuit to inspire and support the arts community guided by these core values.


My goal is to understand your organization's unique DNA to help you achieve what you care about the most: 

AWARENESS of your mission.

ENGAGEMENT in your programs.

SUPPORT for your sustainability.

IMPACT in/on your community.


Whether you're an artist, non-profit arts organization, creative business or institution, I embrace an equitable and inclusive definition of the arts. If it's creative and mission-driven, I'm interested. 


Solutions at Honors in Art are holistic, carefully crafted, and agile, not fixed or siloed.  What remains fixed is my laser focus on obtaining meaningful impact.     

You can be confident that my services in strategic planning, marketing + outreach, programs + education and career development will produce a successful outcome.

I'm a trusted arts administrator with 20 years of experience, a master training and development specialist with three certifications, an arts advocate, and an artist myself.  


I'm known for creating innovative programs and diverse partnerships, bringing back-burner projects to fruition, and producing the best possible results with limited resources in record time.

I've launched many successful local, state and national programs and helped hundreds of artists, educators, and organizations in the public and private sectors, generating over $2 million in funding.   

Jenifer has that rare trifecta
of vision, synthesis,

and implementation. 

Her drive is unmatched.
