Jennifer Sanborn, a 2012 graduate of Hartford Seminary, has joined the institution as part-time admissions recruiter, as announced by President Heidi Hadsell earlier this month.
Jennifer brings to the role a deep appreciation of Hartford Seminary from her years as a student, her current role as part-time pastor of Enfield American Baptist Church, and 20 years of service in higher education, including five years as director of The Women’s Education and Leadership Fund at nearby University of Hartford.
Most recently, Jennifer worked as interim dean of religious and spiritual life at Mount Holyoke College, serving a global student body representing many faith and philosophical traditions. In addition to working at Hartford Seminary and pastoring a growing congregation, she is a life coach for women, serving primarily clients who are active in religious leadership. Jennifer lives in Tariffville with her husband, Matt, their children, Kyra (14) and Lucas (11), and two demanding and loving rescue dogs.
