When asked what advice Jen has for her students, she said, “You can rely on me to help you as much as I am able. Never get in your own way of being successful by doubting yourself. You are important and appreciated. I am proud to get to know you and be a part of your journey, even if it’s just for a little while.”
A fun fact about Jen is that she grew up in the desert. She loves the weather up here because she gets to experience all four seasons. “By the time one season is done, another is already on its way. There is so much more greenery here! The desert is just hot, dry, and sunny all year long.”
