Jennifer Baddour

At just 13 years old, people began to notice that Jennifer Baddour ’96 had a natural inclination for listening and supporting others. After being nominated to serve as a peer supporter in junior high, she learned skills and gained experience guiding young people through challenging times. This sparked in her the desire to care for others and serve her community, and her choice to come to UNC Greensboro. 

She set her sights on a B.S. in human development and family studies with a specialization in children and adolescents. As a strong believer in mental health care and awareness as an ongoing responsibility, she is now a practicing counselor and licensed social worker, working with teens, mothers, college students, and couples.
