Jennifer Pluchinsky

Jennifer Pluchinsky is currently a senior at Christopher Newport University and will graduate with a Bachelor of Arts in History in May 2014. During her time at CNU, she has become involved in on-campus organizations such as University Sounds, REACH, and Alpha Kappa Psi co-ed business fraternity. Jennifer was born and raised in Centreville, Virginia and enjoys singing, playing piano, and attending baseball games in her free time. She is currently working at the Trible Library at Christopher Newport University and interning at the DeWitt Wallace Museum in Colonial Williamsburg.

Her passion and determination are what drive her to succeed, along with two extremely supportive parents and a younger brother who has always loved her unconditionally despite her goofy antics. Jennifer’s sense of adventure and intense desire to travel the world has led her to France, Canada, Germany, Czech Republic, Austria and now Peru! She is extremely grateful to have been chosen to work with the Heritable Innovation Trust program this summer, and is very excited to be involved in such a global effort.
