Director of Operations
Jennifer N. Brown (she/her) manages the details of running the organization (finance, HR, administration) so the staff who work with educators, parents, and the community can focus on what they do best and have the systems and support they need to do it.
Jennifer brings more than 30 years of non-profit management and fundraising experience in education, social justice, public interest, and political advocacy organizations to Sound Discipline. She has an MS in Management and a Certificate in Fundraising Management.
Before she started working at Sound Discipline, Jennifer attended the Positive Discipline in the Classroom workshop. She was blown away from day one and felt that she acquired powerful tools that all of us can use in our lives – not just teachers in classrooms. Jennifer feels proud to be a part of an organization that helps build lifelong skills and tools that can shift how we all treat one another.
What are people most surprised to learn about you?
Probably nothing is a surprise. I am a pretty open book.
What’s your favorite thing to do outside of work?
See live music and travel to visit family.
What drew you to Sound Discipline?
I was drawn to the work of Sound Discipline first when I saw the job opportunity because it was the kind of work I gravitate toward. But it was the mission that really piqued my interest. I was having challenges with my pre-teen child and was hopeful I would get some tools to help us. I indeed got some help right off the bat and have gained more tools and skills with each subsequent Sound Discipline class/workshop I have attended. It has been transformational for our family.
