Dear colleagues,

I am pleased to announce that Jennifer Franssen has been promoted to the new Deputy Director for Financial Planning and Analysis reporting to Lisa Merola-Grimm.  

Jen has over 13 years of finance and administrative experience at Yale. Joining Yale in 2006, Jen managed a portfolio of sponsored awards in the Child Study Center. In 2010, she moved into a financial analyst position at Yale Health, quickly promoted to operations manager in 2013, and in 2016 took the position of lead administrator and director of Finance and Administration.  

Jen earned her B.S. in business administration from Endicott College and holds a M.S. in finance from Northeastern University. Jen’s versatile background, knowledge, and experience will serve her well as she assumes her new role.

Please join me in congratulating Jen as she takes the next step in her career at Yale.
