Jenn Kennedy, a second-year student in Antioch University Santa Barbara’s Masters in Clinical Psychology program, has joined the Board of Directors of the Santa Barbara chapter of the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists as Director of Communications. In this role, Jenn will work with the news media to promote SB-CAMFT as well as manage the chapter’s newsletter.
“Jenn’s presence as a student member on the SB-CAMFT board is an important contribution to the growing partnership and collaboration between AUSB and CAMFT,” Dr. Elizabeth Wolfson, chair of the MACP program said. “CAMFT is the professional organization with which most MACP graduates will affiliate as they train and prepare for licensure as Marriage and Family Therapists. … We are delighted that Jenn has stepped forward to volunteer in this position serving as an important role model to her fellow students around the values of community service, leadership, and affiliation with one’s professional organization.”
Jenn also is involved with the statewide California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists, working as the chair of its Public Outreach Committee since March. Her role is to rebrand the organization and raise public awareness of the benefits of seeking therapy and the value of hiring a licensed MFT.
Jenn has a varied background, working as a marketing director, writer, and photographer before beginning her studies at AUSB. She has been a regular contributor to The Huffington Post, LA Confidential Magazine, Noozhawk, Shape Magazine, and The Advocate. She also has written Success by Design: Revealing Profiles of California Architects, available on Amazon.com.
