Jennifer Nguyen, Ph.D.
“I’m passionate about helping clients find the right fit for their employees, bringing out the best in their people and creating the people management systems that facilitate success.”
Blending her down-to-earth style with exceptional project management skills, Jennifer Nguyen has been helping CMA clients with executive coaching, assessment, talent management and strategic planning needs for over 15 years. Whether her clients are small or large, family-owned or entrepreneurial, she leverages her knowledge and experience to supplement and support lean internal talent management resources. Jen has a particular interest in international companies, and was instrumental in helping launch CMA’s expatriate assessment process—she also continues to hone her conversational Spanish and Vietnamese.
Prior to CMA, Jen completed a Bachelor of Arts, with honors, in Psychology from Southern Illinois University, Carbondale, followed by a Master’s in Industrial/Organizational Psychology from the University of Colorado. Though not a native St. Louisian, she grew to love the city during her time at St. Louis University, where she earned a Ph.D. in Organizational Psychology.
Recently, Jen has been able to feed her love for the mountains with monthly trips to Denver as she helps CMA develop a market presence there. She is an active Board member with the United Way, serving on the organizational development and nominating committees.
Outside of CMA, Jen can often be found working up a sweat at her favorite Crossfit gym, on a girl’s day out with her two daughters, or cooking up a gourmet meal with her husband.
