“I feel like I have always been attracted to people by their character first and not outward appearance. I think the most attractive people are the ones who can make you laugh, see the positive side and have a passion for something.”
As an avid reader, Jenn has realized that her life has been a series of chapters – often aligning with decades. Her upbringing in the midwest was surrounded with family and the support of her paternal grandparents, which influenced her value of strong family relationships. Her Grandmother taught her the importance of caring for those you love through small acts of kindness and quiet strength. Through many ups and downs in her life story, Jenn is a believer that everyone comes into your life for a reason – you learn something from each one.
As the proud Mother of two, Jenn is pleased to say her adult children are incredibly caring and creatively individualistic. She is looking forward to watching what they do in this world and celebrating every milestone with them.
Jenn thrives on collaboration and has found success in roles as a Construction Project Manager and Sales for many innovative companies. Like a Ringmaster of a 3 -ring circus, she is not easily rattled and manages multiple activities with ease. She has made life-long friends through her work experiences and values their unique wisdom, unconditional support, and therapeutic laughter. Her work is not her only creative outlet- she enjoys both creating and supporting art and artists of all types. She believes everyone is an artist, as art is truly just another form of expression of emotion.
Jenn’s current life chapter has brought significant change and fueled her sense of adventure. Her 50’s have provided her with more freedom that has allowed her to explore new hobbies such as car racing in AutoCross events, getting her Motorcycle endorsement and exploring more of the PNW in a vintage-inspired travel trailer. She has shared this with the Love she wants to marry and is excited about their wedding in the Fall of 2023.
Jenn is doing what she would advise her 20-something self (and her children) to do, ‘Don’t worry about not knowing what to do, or feeling incapable. Be brave and try something different. You will learn new skills and make new friends along the way. You will create a network that will support you and help you the rest of your life. And most importantly, you will feel great!’
