Associate Director of Housing


Jennifer “Jenni” Shinpaugh joined the VSU Housing team as the Associate Director of Housing Operations in May 2016. Born and raised in St. Petersburg, FL, she is extremely happy to be back in the south.  She has her Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing from the University of South Florida – Tampa and her Master’s Degree in Counselor Education – Student Affairs from Mississippi State University.  Previously, she served as an Area Coordinator at Austin College (TX), Director of Residence Life and Housing at Catawba College (NC), and an Assistant Director of Residence Life at SUNY Oswego (NY).  Jenni also serves on the Campus Wellness Committee and enjoys focusing on being a well-person.

Outside of work, Jenni likes to play board games – her favorites are Settlers of Catan, Dominion, and Mad King Ludwig’s Castle – and go on adventures. She loves to cruise and has recently sailed through Italy and to Cuba.  She is headed to Belize and Honduras soon!  Her favorite sports teams are the Tampa Bay Lightning and the Florida State Seminoles. She plays fantasy football but is admittedly not great at it.  Jenni also likes to spend time with her husband, Justin, who is an EMT and her dogs Cupcake and Scrappy Doo.
