Constructive Effective Facilitative

Jennifer Dancy

At the suggestion of a friend Jennifer pursued mediation as a profession. With her background in business, teaching, and degrees in Psychology, it was very evident that mediation is a natural fit for her. Her excellent soft skills, empathetic and active listening, clarifying, and seeking a win-win approach leads to constructive conflict resolution.

"Interest-based mediation lends itself nicely to my personality and communication style." says Jennifer. Her listening skills, calming demeanor and tone of voice are effective in helping parties address their issues and to manage and bring forward emotion in a safe environment.
