Jennifer holds a bachelor’s degree in chemistry and a PhD in organic chemistry. After school, she spent some time in the world of academia, researching medical issues. Eventually, she decided to transition into coating chemistry, and began searching for organizations in that field. Jennifer decided on Rust-Oleum for its outstanding educational opportunities.
Jennifer works in the product development group for aerosol sprays. She splits her time between lab work and research time. In the lab, she stays busy working on groundbreaking product formulations in collaboration with Rust-Oleum’s High Performance Group. At her desk, Jennifer reads patents and researches literature for new product development ideas in areas the organization targets.
"Every year, we have an R&D Symposium where we're able to show the Marketing & Sales Department what’s going on here in the lab. We have everything from a talk to a tabletop presentation where we get the chance to share what we’re excited about, what we’ve been developing, and some of the successes we’ve had."
“It’s my goal to continue developing products that meet the standard Rust-Oleum is setting for this industry.”
