Jennifer Goodwin is a Senior Director in the Talent and Performance department at Northwestern Mutual. In her current role, she leads Employee Relations and Culture Strategy for the company’s salesforce.
Jennifer graduated from Marquette University for both her undergraduate and law degrees. For over eight years, she practiced employment law in a boutique labor and employment law firm. However, driven by a newfound interest in the field of human resources from working with her clients, Jennifer made a bold career transition to Northwestern Mutual.
During her journey, Jennifer’s passion for company culture was ignited when she pursued an Organizational Development Certificate at UWM School of Continuing Education in 2011. It was during this time that she encountered an influential instructor who instilled in her the belief that “one person can change the culture of a company.” This realization fueled Jennifer’s dedication to cultivating positive and impactful work environments.
