Jen has been part of the Wellstone Action team since 2007 serving in a variety of roles, most recently as manager of Camp Wellstone and Advanced Campaign Management School. Today, she puts her organizing skills to work assisting all Wellstone Action programs.
Jen came to Wellstone Action 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 ensuring things run smoothly at Wellstone Action, Jen prefers to be hiking, baking, or sewing. She lives in St. Paul with her husband and Lilly, the sweetest lab/pit bull rescue dog you will ever meet.
