Jennifer Vit

Conference Planning & Management

Jennifer Vit, Event Manager, coordinates workshops, short courses and conferences that are academic or educational in nature. Most of her clients are professors, departments and colleges within Iowa State University making Jennifer our resident smarty pants. Example: Did you know Sclerochronology is the study of physical and chemical variations of things that live in the ocean? Jennifer came to ISU Conferences Planning & Management in 2006 and worked in higher education before that (so yes, she was already smart). She holds a Bachelor of Science degree from Iowa State University and a Master of Science degree from Texas A&M University (but she’s still a Cyclone at heart).

Jennifer spends non-work hours chasing three young sons, gardening, and raising livestock on her acreage. She could be a trivia show lifeline for subjects including aperiodic crystals, pollinator traits, ultra-high performance concrete and dozens of other topics ingrained in her head by working with academics over the last couple decades.

You can’t beat ISU for: the electricity in Hilton Coliseum during a big game. There’s really something to that Hilton Magic!
