Who We Are

Marian Jennings founded M. Jennings Consulting in 2004 after having co-founded and served for nineteen years as President of the national consulting firm of Jennings Ryan & Kolb. M. Jennings Consulting continues the tradition of consulting excellence and personal attention her clients value.

Our experience in health care is both broad, spanning diverse markets across the country, and deep, given our long-term relationships with our clients. In addition, our years of work with Catholic health systems across the country have given us a unique perspective on the challenges faith-based systems face in balancing their mission and financial integrity.
