Technology Saves 300 Families in Oakland, New Jersey After Hurricane Irene...
Jennifer Goodwin creates an online Digital Command Center overnight to handle disasters.
While Jennifer was visiting a friend in NJ in 2011, Hurricane Irene approached. The effects of Hurricane Irene in New Jersey alone included about $1 billion in damage to 200,000 homes and buildings. This made it the costliest disaster in the state's history. Irene struck the state on August 28, 2011 and effected 300 families and homes in the small town of Oakland.
Jennifer quickly jumped into action and stayed up all night creating an online command center to quickly activate the town into 2 categories: Victims or Volunteers. Three months and 300 families later, she passed the baton to FEMA and The Red Cross.
Miss Goodwin's Marketing Agency donates free assistance to Veterans who launch.
After a near-death motorcycle crash in 2012 and almost 3 years off from life, Jennifer came back to reclaim her position as a strong leader and WHOLE person. The time off gave her the hindsight and clarity to do a few things differently "this time around".
One of her very first commitments was to help veterans launch businesses by leveraging two decades of internet knowledge.
Her dream is to secure sponsorship for a Mobile Command Center (or TOC) to bring more awareness to Vets Who Launch by attending more events around the country.
