Jennifer established Cartier’s Hair Salon in the Spring of 1999. Cartier’s is a full service salon.

Jennifer has been a volunteer for the American Cancer Society for thirteen years. She teaches the “Look Good Feel Better” program — a free national program that offers make-up lessons for those clients who are undergoing or have undergone radiation and/or chemotherapy treatments, who have damaged skin pigmentation and/or experienced the loss of their eyebrows and eyelashes. She also has  worked with the American Cancer Society to maintain a wig bank in her own personal salon. This program is for underprivileged patients who qualify to receive a donated wig.

Jennifer’s salon is an active participant with the Locks of Love Program and Pantene Great Lengths Program. She found a wig manufacturer in New York City that uses the hair provided to them to make personalized wigs. She also has made Cartier’s a provider of prosthetic pieces (wigs and hair pieces) under the Empire Blue Cross & Blue Shield Insurance Program. She has familiarized herself with insurance practices and can answer any questions and assist with expediting the reimbursement process.

She established La Boutique, a store located in the Dyson Center at Vassar Brothers Medical Center. La Boutique sells wigs, hats, scarves, and turbans for cancer patients.
