Jennifer is a prominent vocal advocate for policies and recommendations to achieve a more efficient CA-US border. Working with stakeholder partners and CA-US officials Jennifer continues to work to raise awareness of, and bring pragmatism to, border and security issues impeding North American competitiveness.

Jennifer’s knowledge goes beyond border programs such as FAST and AEO Trusted Trader programs, harmonization of North American requirements, pre-inspection and pre-clearance initiatives, infrastructure issues and border wait times, emergency management planning, and highly complex immigration, tax and cabotage law and extends to Canada’s role in international trade and the affect the CA-US relationship has on North America’s ability to compete globally.
