Domestic Violence Discussion
with Jennifer Landhuis


Jennifer Landhuis has been an advocate for abused women and children for the last ten years. As the public educator at her domestic violence program, Jennifer designed and implemented a comprehensive domestic violence and sexual assault program for students and faculty at both the high school and college levels. She implemented a screening program for hospitals and educated numerous medical personnel on how to recognize and respond to domestic violence. She also trained law enforcement and emergency dispatchers on responding to domestic violence calls. Jennifer has educated thousands of individuals on this important issue. In addition to being the educator, Jennifer was also an advocate for abused women and children. She provided crisis intervention, 24-hour advocacy, and referrals to countless women and children. Jennifer is a graduate of Midland College with a degree in Youth and Family Ministry and Human Services. Jennifer is married and has two small children.
