Jennifer Rivas

Jennifer keeps Ampersand’s trains running on time.


Jennifer manages Ampersand Operations. Her quiet competence keeps each project running smoothly for our clients and design teams.

She started her career as a professional investment analyst, advising personal clients, managing corporate retirement plans, and earning a Wealth Management Specialist designation along the way.  A hyper-organizer to the core, she leverages her financial background and human resources experience to ensure seamless functionality to financial, legal and HR functions for Ampersand.

A native Nashvillian, naturally Jennifer’s career included an early stint singing demos and livening up the local gin joints. Otherwise she can usually be found between the pages of a book or working in fits and starts on one of two that she’s writing.

In addition to her Ampersand responsibilities, Jennifer’s gearing up for her first entrepreneurial endeavor—with an eye towards feeding the travel bug—triggered by her annual participation in the Netherlands’ Roodharigendag summer festival (“Redhead Day”). And if you think you’re ready for a Darwinian museum tour of her specimen archives, ask “The Lucky Duchess” about her quadrafoliphilia.
