Born and raised in San Francisco, Jennifer is the sixth generation of her family to reside there. For many generations, her family has been active Jewish philanthropists, which has instilled in her a strong sense of tikkun olam. Tikkun olam means to repair the world, which Jennifer takes quite literally to mean protecting the planet, preserving the world’s natural wonders, and fighting climate change. The Goldman Environmental Prize, founded by Jennifer’s grandparents the year she was born, has served as her inspiration, fueling her desire to protect the planet. She wholeheartedly believes that the grassroots environmentalists honored each year are true heroes who make our world a better place for all of us. Jennifer, along with two others, is creating a mobile application—Springr—to motivate its users to consider how their transportation decisions affect the climate. This automated application rewards its users for making environmentally positive decisions and works to create a sense of community around those making environment-friendly choices. By aggregating the results of the Springr community, the application will display how, in spite of the smallness of each individual decision, the choices of the community have a far larger impact. Given Springr’s small team, Jennifer is wearing many different hats, from managing the development team to tracking finances to brainstorming and perfecting new concepts. In addition to Springr, Jennifer is an advisor to the nonprofit Rainforest Connection as well as the for-profit Elevate Structures. Both entities are organizations at the intersection of innovation and the environment.
