A recovering lawyer and federal lobbyist, Jennifer Searfoss, Principal of Searfoss & Associates, brings her experience in grassroots activism to change the healthcare world as we know it. This one ‘n’ Jen is an Adjunct Associate Professor at Georgetown University teaching in the graduate Health Systems Administration programs.

Jennifer was the Vice President of External Provider Relations for UnitedHealthcare, a Minnesota-based health insurance company. Before going behind the iron curtain, Jennifer served as the External Relations Liaison for the Washington, DC-based Government Affairs Department of the Medical Group Management Association (MGMA).

In 2007, The White House Project collected essays from hundreds of young women who want to be president. These essays, including Jennifer’s, are featured in the book, “She’s Out There: Essays by 35 Young Women Who Aspire to 

Lead the Nation: The Next Generation of Presidential Candidates.” Jennifer’s essay details how in 2006 she put her feet to the pavement and campaigned for a candidate she knew well – herself! Receiving over 4000 votes, Jennifer was elected to a local post. The next year, Jen faced family obligations and had to make the painful decision to leave her local elected office. She has participated in several book tours and continues to speak about how women can and should be more engaged in the electoral process.

Jennifer received her undergraduate degree in health science and policy from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County and law degree from the University of Maryland. She lives in Northern Virginia with her husband and fuzzy children Sirius the black cat, Atlas the Rottie, and Pressed for Time the Quarter Horse gelding.

Testimonials

Comments from our Clients & meeting attendees

Jennifer Searfoss is one of those speakers who combines extraordinary knowledge and grasp of a subject with an engaging and informative presentation. I have attended numerous of her presentations and have co-presented with her as well. Jennifer is the consummate professional who brings content expertise and enthusiasm to each of her presentations.
I've had the pleasure of watching Jen's presentation style evolve over the last decade with the changes in Medicare policy. No matter the bad news, she tries to make it exciting and less frightening. In light of the significant changes going on across the country in the healthcare industry, its good to have an expert who knows how to deliver tough messages.
Jen is the go to person to demystify complex congressional and regulatory policies affecting healthcare. She takes legalese and translates it into what we normal people speak in our medical offices and clinics everyday. Jen then makes it tangible for us to take action on new mandates and coming changes in this dynamic medical industry. She is an excellent and engaging speaker. And her team is easy to work with in getting programs developed to meet the needs of different specialties.
Jennifer was fascinating to hear and exceptionally bright and well informed. She surely cast grave concerns for the future of physician reimbursement and health care delivery going forward.
