Jennifer Krow ’03
Senior Financial Analyst
Walt Disney World Resort
Lake Buena Vista, Florida
When Jennifer Krow is having a hard day at work, all she needs to do to feel better is step outside—where she is greeted by Mickey Mouse, Cinderella, and a host of other Disney characters. “I love where I work,” she says.
Jennifer, a 2003 graduate who was a finance and accouting major, is a senior financial analyst with Disney World in Florida, helping manage the financial budget for the operations portion of the company. She says her experience at Alvernia prepared her well for her promising career, which started quickly after graduation with a finance position at Microsoft in Seattle.
“The teachers at Alvernia are absolutely amazing,” she says. “They really had an impact on me.” Because Alvernia’s class sizes are small, Jennifer says her professors were able to provide individualized attention to each of their students and make sure everyone understood the material. Not only that, her professors taught relevant, real-world information, applicable to what Jennifer is working on now.
For Jennifer, an Alvernia education, combined with a little Disney magic, has created a career she’s passionate about.
