Jennifer Talley, MM

Advocacy Domain Project Manager

Jennifer.Talley@uhhospitals.org More Information

Jennifer assumed the role of FAN/Advocacy Program Manager on September 28th. She is based at the University Hospitals Rainbow Babies and Children’s Center for Child Health Policy in Cleveland, Ohio. Jennifer has been with University Hospitals since 2018; prior to this position she worked in Ambulatory Operations, assisting with the onboarding, relocation, and departure of various providers to the UH system.

Jennifer has a wide-ranging career history, having previously worked as a K-12 teacher, a collegiate instructor, an assistant to several attorneys at The Florida Bar in Tallahassee, and as an office manager at a local arts non-profit in Cleveland. Her educational background is similarly diverse; she earned dual Bachelor of Arts degrees in Music Education and Music Theory from Indiana State University in 2007, a Master of Music degree in Musicology in 2009 from Florida State University, and has completed coursework and preliminary examinations towards a PhD in Musicology. Currently, she is working towards an MBA-MPH from Cleveland State University, with an expected graduation date of 2024.

Jennifer has a passion for people and their stories: she finds joy in working with individuals (oftentimes through the medium of their music), helping to bring perhaps otherwise obscure stories to wider attention. She was drawn to this position because she has witnessed firsthand the power of storytelling in advocating for change. Furthermore, the ESMC/EIIC mission aligns strongly with her life’s goal of being a voice for the voiceless, be it children, marginalized communities, or other disenfranchised groups. She is greatly looking forward to helping the FAN grow into its new phase as part of the EMSC/EIIC 2.0 plan.

When not at work, Jennifer lives in University Heights, Ohio with her husband, Christian, and their four cats. In addition to music, she also enjoys gardening, the joys of first time home ownership, needlework, reading, watching movies, and spending time with her family. If you need to reach Jennifer, please feel free to contact her at jennifer.talley@uhhosptials.org.
