TPL was founded by teacher and “educational match-maker” Jennifer Zehenni out of her love for education and a passion to help people in all walks of life find the support they need. What started as a solo practice off and on throughout the past 14+ years, anchored as an edu boutique in 2014, and began collaborating with a select few educational specialists. We are grateful for the dynamos on the team and know you will love them too. Click each picture to open a bio on the professional.
