Since joining METIS in November of 2014, Jennifer has had continued success in managing cradle to grave business development activities, resulting in the acquisition of large agency specific IDIQ vehicles, stand-alone contracts, and task orders. Additionally, she acquired both pools of GSA’s $5.75 B Human Capital and Training Solutions (HCaTS) MA-IDIQ vehicle. While leading business development and propsoal activities at METIS, Jennifer contributed to the following win percentages (P-Win): 100% P-Win on the five IDIQs pursued in 2015, a 60% P-Win on contracts/task orders bid in 2015, a 41% P-Win on task orders bid in 2016 (while doubling the number of opportunities bid the previous year), and recognition on the Inc. 500/5000 list for the third year in a row.
Jennifer continues to identify key strategic opportunities for METIS, participates in the capture process, offers input into the techincal solution proposition for those opportunities, and now manages a team of proposal support staff overseeing the proposal process from pre-solicitation through contract award.
In 2013, she became the Business Development and Proposal Manager at Infinity Technology. While at Infinity, she won a $60 B multiple-award Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (MA-IDIQ) Small Business (SB) vehicle – General Services Administration’s (GSA’s) One Acquisition Solution for Integrated Services (OASIS) SB, two Blanket Purchase Agreements (BPAs), and subsequent task orders.
An Arkansas native, Jennifer grew up outside Little Rock and graduated from the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville. After graduation, she spent several years in the coporate business, legal, and real estate fields as well as assisting non-profits and other charitable organizations in both central and northwest Arkansas. After moving to the Washington D.C. metro area, she coupled her fifteen years of writing, researching, contracts, and marketing experience in the commercial space with an in-depth knowledge of the government acquisition process. She has used this background to successfully execute the strategic growth of two small businesses as they progress through the NAICS code size standards.
