Jen has proudly been part of the Wellstone team since 2007 serving in a variety of roles, from managing Camp Wellstone to coordinating alumni engagement. Currently, she serves as Senior Program Assistant.
Jen came to Wellstone following a year of service and intentional living with the St. Joseph Worker Program where she worked at St. Catherine University in a civic engagement and service-learning office. Prior to moving to Minnesota, Jen was living in her home state of Iowa, a place she credits for her interest in politics, having grown up attending straw polls, caucuses, and rallies. She is a graduate of Loras College in Dubuque, Iowa.
When not excitedly wrangling data or helping programs run smoothly at Wellstone, Jen prefers to be outdoors or working on her next creative project. She lives in St. Paul with her husband, daughter, and the sweetest lab/pit bull rescue dog you will ever meet.
