She attended the Ashland Institute of Massage and graduated in 2015. She is a licensed massage therapist and a stretching enthusiast. Her current obsessions include rainy weather, Birkenstocks, and miniature things.

Jen is Sudoku lover and is quite fond of all things sparkly and shiny. She is also a proud, terrible cook; her favorite day of the week is Sunday because it’s “fend for yourself” day for her family.
