Meet Jennifer Floersch

Manager of Counseling Services

Jennifer Floersch is the manager of counseling services at Colorado Connections Academy, a network of tuition-free online public schools. She received a bachelor’s degree in human services at Elon University in North Carolina. She moved to the Midwest and continued her education at DePaul University in Chicago earning a master’s of education degree in school counseling.

Ms. Floersch always knew that she belonged in the helping profession, so after graduating, she found a position as the director of an Upward Bound program, helping first-generation and low-income high school students pursue their dream of college.

Ms. Floersch relocated to Colorado when her husband got a job in Denver. After three years of working as the academic coordinator and college counselor at a charter school in Aurora, Colorado, Ms. Floersch was lucky enough to find Colorado Connections Academy and expand her career into the virtual world.

She finds that the environment is very welcoming, and the entire staff is incredibly supportive and motivating. Ms. Floersch has grown to love online learning and can see it as being a perfect educational fit for our students and families.
