Jennifer O'Byrne

Volunteer and Event Coordinator

 

Jennifer joined the WSA team in June 2011. Previously she worked for the nonprofit Lighthouse of Oakland County as their events coordinator. She loves planning the events and interacting with people with Williams syndrome, and says that “the WS individuals are the best part of my job—the friendships. They are my people.” She especially enjoys the adults with Williams, with whom she thinks she shares a kindred spirit, as she defines herself as also wearing her heart on her sleeve. Jennifer’s favorite event happens at the bi-annual WSA conference, and that’s the dance party, which she describes as quite the moment of joy and excitement for all. When not at work, Jennifer is shuttling her three children Declan, Liam and Fiona (they might be a bit Irish!) around and enjoys golf and using her artistic talents “up-cycling” furniture.
