Jen was born and raised in Austin, Texas and earned her Bachelor of Arts in Journalism and teaching certification from Texas A&M University. After college she moved to Dallas, where she worked as a teacher, writer, and graphic designer. She has served with various non-profits that benefit students, teen moms, families in West Dallas, local rescue missions, and global relief efforts. A volunteer visit to For the Nations led her to a role she loves as a 6th grade teacher at the FTNRO co-op school. The ability to build relationships with refugee students and see them take off in their academic abilities has been one of the most rewarding things she has ever done. Jen is married to Mason and has three kids. She enjoys spending time outdoors, reading, creating, and attending the many, many cross country meets of her three running children.
