Jennifer Oetting, Program Director
I am proud to join TCME as Program Director and look forward to being part of the future of the organization. I come to the position with a wide variety of experience having held leadership positions at the University of Missouri including Cardiovascular Medicine Division Administrator and Wellness Program Coordinator. I developed an interest in population health while working in healthcare but fell in love with seeing the deep and meaningful impact on individuals while working in the wellness program. I went on to run my own baking business where I focused on creative flavor profiles and working with local ingredients. I count myself fortunate to be passionate about my work whether it's in the kitchen or helping others.
I hold a Bachelor of Science in Business & Human Resources from William Woods University and am a long-time resident of Columbia, Missouri in the USA. Columbia is home and where I have raised my son who has achieved his dream of proudly serving as a United States Marine. I now enjoy spending time with my loved ones, friends, and fur children. You'll find me savoring beautiful farm-to-table meals at local restaurants or experiencing live music in the local area and beyond.
