Meet the Board: Co-Director of Membership – Jennifer Crenshaw

Jennifer Crenshaw

Tell us about your business or the work you do.  I am a professional photographer and Owner of Jennifer Crenshaw Photography. I’ve been capturing couples on camera for over 10 years in Dallas, and I love catching those candid moments.

How long have you been a NACE member? On the board? I joined the DFW NACE chapter in 2019 and joined the board as Co-Director of Membership at the beginning of 2021.

What is your personal motto? “Start each day with a positive thought and a grateful heart.”

What is your guilty pleasure? I feel like a have a few. Chocolate for sure, I can never pass it up. And wine, I love red wine. Just give me chocolate, wine, and a good movie and I’m in my happy place!

Which actor or actress would play you in the movie about your life? Anne Hathaway

What does true leadership mean to you? Leadership is about taking charge and doing the hard work. It’s about speaking up for others and always being there to help and provide support. A true leader sets a good example by showing kindness and respect to others.

What is in the trunk of your car right now? Right now, there’s nothing in the trunk because grocery pickup has been a lifesaver during Covid-19.
