Meet Jennifer

Jennifer Hernandez is a business intelligence analyst, domestic violence advocate, volunteer, and author. An Omaha resident of almost a decade, she is a member of the local creative arts community and has worked with several small businesses using data to increase their productivity and revenue.

As a survivor of domestic abuse, Jennifer has been on the other side of the Clerk's desk for custody and stalking cases, and wants to use her experience with process improvement to simplify procedures. With an increasing number of people representing themselves in court it is essential they have the tools they need. A Korean-American woman, she’s seen the effects of discrimination and bias and wants to provide better public service to the people of Douglas County.
