Jennifer Hooker


Jennifer Hooker earned her B.A. in Political Science from Syracuse University, and her M.P.A. from St. Mary’s University.  Prior to joining SPA’s Ph.D. program, she taught government classes at Northwest Vista College in San Antonio, TX, and worked as an independent research consultant.  Jennifer’s research interests are in the fields of labor and healthcare policy.  Her most recent project, The Texas STAR+PLUS Expansion:  What could it mean for Texas?, explores possible outcomes of the expansion of privatized Medicaid managed care in Texas by looking at comparable models in other states.  This research was conducted on behalf of Texas State Employees Union, and was recently cited in testimony before the House Human Services Committee in the Texas Legislature.  While earning her Ph.D., she plans to study matters related to the federal minimum wage and the implementation of the Affordable Care Act.
