PresenceLearning, the leading provider of live online special education related services for K-12 schools, has hired education industry veteran Jennifer Berry as its new Chief Operating Officer. In this role, Berry will oversee all of the company’s operations including its clinical management and support teams.
Berry was brought on board to drive operational and clinical excellence as PresenceLearning grows its partnerships with school district special education and counseling teams. The company partners with education administrators to support their staff in meeting all of their students’ special education and mental health service needs. Teletherapy Essentials by PresenceLearning provides school teams with a suite of therapy content, activities, and evaluations on a video platform designed to enhance workforce flexibility and remote service.

Our potential for impact has never been greater and our leadership team is excited for the opportunity,” said PresenceLearning CEO Kate Eberle Walker.
